Overview

It’s time to get past the idea that divorce equals failure. Sure, it may not be what you had in mind when you walked down the aisle, but if it’s the escape hatch into a better life, it should be filled with more promise. It can be celebrated.

Ask Me About My Divorce is a spicy, fun, riveting collection of essays by women from all walks of life. With the unifying thread "I got divorced, and the world came into view," the words within will make readers laugh, cry, nod their heads, and feel inspired to do what they need to for themselves. These aren't stories from women tiptoeing around a difficult subject — they're about the ways divorce can be, in fact, a new lease on life.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

In keeping with the almost defiant title, this collection of 29 essays is a mixture of ballsy and introspective, humorous and bleak-though never bleak for long. Though individual and quirky, these essays share a theme. As Julie Hammonds writes pithily in "The Love List": "What to do next with my life? Where to go? Who to become? Big questions, fear inducing." She decided to travel solo for six months. And while the economic effects of divorce are all too real, each woman has a chance to become stronger, more herself. As Marrit Ingman says with delightful economy in "Breakup Buddies," "Our fortunes declined. But at the same time, our struggles had a reason, at last. Bad odds were better than no chance at all." Editor Walsh (Moving to New York) steps up the honesty in revealing that she left her unhappy marriage after falling in love with her female therapist, ultimately finding her true love via Match.com. These stories of exploration and change, whether tentative or bold, will inspire readers who are questioning their own status. (June)
