Alexander has herself commented on her relationship with Anna Anthropy in her book [https://gumroad.com/l/aisCU Clipping Through]. In the book, written in 2014, Alexander mentions that she has known Anthropy for several years. She says she does not see Anthropy as a "close friend," she also writes that she has great respect for Anthropy and has a strong fear of disappointing her. Alexander mentions two occasions in which she spent leisure time with Anthropy. The first occasion was when Anna was at Alexander's apartment and read a story Leigh had written as a child. The second occasion was when Alexander and Anthropy went to drink at a bar in New York. According to Alexander, this happened "about two years ago," probably around 2012 since Alexander's book was written in 2014. Alexander writes that during this outing "Anna gave me [Leigh Alexander] a playful swat on my rear end." Alexander did not think much of this incident, but on the next day Anthropy apologized to Alexander for having touched her without her consent.<ref>''Clipping Through'', pp. 28-30.
