Overview


TV writer Hilary Winston offers up a witty collection of autobiographical tales about her misadventures in dating.

Just when Hilary feels like her life is finally in order, she gets a sucker-punch to the gut: Her ex has written a novel based on their relationship in which he refers to her throughout as the “fat-assed girlfriend.” Her response to this affront is just one of the many hilarious stories in My Boyfriend Wrote a Book About Me--a laugh-out-loud, tell-all in which Hilary sets the record straight on all her exes.
 
Hilary Winston was writer and producer of the critically acclaimed comedy Community and was one of the writers for the Emmy®-award-winning show My Name Is Earl. She  is the creator of a new comedy that will air on CBS in early 2014, Bad Teacher.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Winston's memoir is funny, sensitive, and in the end accomplishes what her ex-boyfriend's novel never could--brazenly tell a story of their relationship destined for the nonfiction shelves." --Booklist
 
“The stories--snappy, sparse, and conversational--are no-holds barred.”--Women's Wear Daily
 
“A heartfelt and hilarious look at single life in L.A.”--Hollywood Reporter
 
“An unflinchingly honest tome that is so insightful and funny.”--New York Post
 
“Perhaps it's not a typical tale. But then again, nothing is usual in the life of Hilary Winston as she hilariously chronicles in her [book]. . . . Winston bares it all with comedic flair, from seeing just what her ex-boyfriend thought of their five years together (in a nationally distributed novel, no less) to all the not-so-glorious relationships that came before and after.”--Metro New York
 
“Winston's story is emotionally revealing, easy to relate to, and always hilarious.”--Back Stage
 
“With self-deprecating schadenfreude, Community writer Hilary Winston sets her relationship story straight.”--More magazine
 
“A laugh-out-loud, tell-all in which Hilary sets the record straight for all her exes.”--WPIX 11 Morning News
 
“Winston's guiding philosophy appears to be: If it's too embarrassing to talk about, publish it. Her brutal, naked honesty is what anchors the book and makes it both so moving and so entertaining.”--Slate.com
