Overview

As a little kid, a boy would pinch the girl he liked. As a grown-up, Mark Svartz plans her ultimate demise through a number of twisted murder plots that involve lead pipes, escape routes, and David Hasselhoff. Some guys never grow up.

This book chronicles the eight months, sixteen days, and some-odd hours since Mark first laid eyes on the despicable, wretched wench he's destined to fight to the death. Every note, thought, IM, email, Post-It, and craigslist ad looking for a crime-scene clean-up is meticulously catalogued in Mark's journal.

Is it a diary of a mad man? Or a man madly in love? Who cares? It's seriously messed up. And seriously funny.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In this quippy, feverish love story in reverse, adman Svartz finds an incredible number of permutations within in limited premise and keeps his copy fresh throughout. This detailed replication of a personal journal may prove that revenge is best served droll."
--Time Out New York

"Mark Svartz's I Hate You, Kelly Donahue is surely like no other book I have ever read in my whole life. Svartz's book will be remembered for a long time. I give Svartz a lot of credit for writing a book in a new format. It is a brutally raw and honest account of one male's struggle with love. So, fasten your seat belt and get ready for a wonderful journey."
--Technorati/Blog Critics
