Overview

From the author of The Art of Mingling comes a witty romantic comedy about endings…and new beginnings

RULE #1: DON’T PANIC—IT ONLY ATTRACTS SHARKS

It’s not the end of the world. That’s what depressed, 39-year-old Tess Eliot has to remind herself after losing her newspaper column and being dumped by her boyfriend for a younger woman (a feng shui expert? Really?) But when Tess gets hired by a wacky cult to write an etiquette guide to prepare for what the cult believes is imminent global catastrophe, she begins to ask herself: “Wait—could the world actually be coming to an end?”

At first, Tess fakes her way through chapters like “Boundaries in the Bunker” and “Cannibalism: Yes or No?” Then she uncovers what appears to be a bona fide plot for world destruction, and she embarks on a life-changing odyssey—involving all-too-close encounters with touchy-feely survivalists and conspiracy theorists, and one handsome guy who seems way too perfect. Filled with wit and insight (including the “Twelve Rules to Live and Die By”), Etiquette for the End of the World is laugh-out-loud fun, with surprising life lessons along the way.

“When the world comes to an end, I want Jeanne Martinet at my side, giving me dating protocol and telling me how to carry my weapons. Etiquette for the End of the World is brilliant, page-turning fun.”
-- Debra Galant, author of Rattled

“Jeanne Martinet has written a wise and witty novel, full of surprises and lovable characters.”
-- Richard Marek, author of Works of Genius

"Warmhearted and deliciously sly...Read it, laugh out loud, and be prepared for anything!"
-- Laura Moore, author of Trouble Me

“A funny, charming and knowing look at post-2012 romance.”
-- Dalma Heyn, author of Marriage Shock: The Transformation of Women into Wives

“Smart and funny”
-- Randy Cohen, author of Be Good: How to Navigate the Ethics of Everything
