What People are Saying About This

Wayne Koestenbaum

“I love this book's fearless engagement with the impossibility of marriage; gorgeously Zucker combines prosaic thoroughness with stopped-time incandescence. If The Bad Wife Handbook is the manifesto for a new movement, sign me up!”

From the Publisher

"I love this book's fearless engagement with the impossibility of marriage; gorgeously Zucker combines prosaic thoroughness with stopped-time incandescence. If The Bad Wife Handbook is the manifesto for a new movement, sign me up!"—Wayne Koestenbaum, author of Best-Selling Jewish Porn Films: New Poems

"Zucker has the confessionalist's knack for turning personal and difficult into universal and transcendent, and the experimentalist's gift for fearless, associative play. The combination is unsettling and ground-breaking: a vitally necessary book for our age."—Arielle Greenberg, author of My Kafka Century
