If you’ve ever had to survive a broken marriage, this hilarious and often scathingly sarcastic book will fast become your new BFF on the road to recovery. Journalist Sue Mittenthal and fundraiser Linda Reing renewed their friendship when both of their respective husbands “toddled off,” as they say, and the result is this honest yet utterly outrageous tongue-in-cheek look at the “other woman,” the “moron ex husband,” and all the crap that comes before and after a divorce.
From first meeting his younger, plastic surgery-altered Barbie doll, to dealing with your own newly single status, to trying to get your kids to understand that even adults have sex lives, this book proves that women still have “it” even in the midst of suffering through the anger, angst and anxiety of a divorce…and the post-traumatic stress that comes from having to once again enter the dating world.
Ultimately, this clever guide of short and punchy vignettes is about learning to love your own life and survive on your own, and even find happiness again, whether in the arms of a guy you meet in the most unexpected of ways…or, lo and behold, by yourself. Because once the baggage is gone, travel gets a whole lot lighter!
