?Not only funny, it?s also fully triumphant...a heartbreaking pleasure to read.?(Elle)

Suzanne Finnamore didn?t see it coming. Well, she saw some things?for example, a cocktail napkin on which her husband had scribbled a Cole Porter love song and an indecipherable name?but she refused to acknowledge it. She was busy tending to their son and creating the perfect home. Until the night it all imploded. ?I deserve happiness,? he said, which apparently translated into ousting her from his life. At once funny, sad, and unflinchingly fierce, this memoir will resonate with anyone who has endured the end of a relationship?and come out on the other side changed.

Review:

So Perfectly Right. I loved it, loved it, loved it. p.s. "Loved it,"
Haven Kimmel, "New York Times" bestselling author of "A Girl Named Zippy" and "The Used World"
""SPLIT" is brilliant, poignant and completely unique. Suzanne Finnamore has refined her caustic wit to the point where it is now an assault rifle perfectly aimed at both herself and marauding spouses throughout America. Her voice captivates even the most jaded lovers."
Augusten Burroughs, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Running With Scissors"
"Powerful. "SPLIT" reads like a greased bullet."
Judith Moore, bestselling author of "Fat Girl"

Haven Kimmel, #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of "A Girl Named Zippy"
"SPLIT is heart-rending and beautiful; Finnamore is a master storyteller, and this time, the story is her own. She is that rarest of things on today's literary landscape a truly great writer, the real deal. This book will never let you forget it."
Darin Strauss, author of "More Than It Hurts You" and "Chang and Eng"
"Powerful. SPLIT reads like a greased bullet."
Judith Moore, bestselling author of"Fat Girl"
"SPLIT is a terrific piece of writing. Powerful, moving, well-written, with some profound and sometimes poetic insights into the human condition. I ask no more from literature."
Gerald Nicosia, author of "Memory Babe"
A sharp, cut-to-the-quick account of painful divorce....In brief, astute chapters riddled with a dry, deadpan humor, the author reconstructs this surreal journeyFinnamore conveys in this frank, winning memoir her supreme vulnerability and bravery.
"Publishers Weekly"
"Finnamore...easily makes the transition to creative nonfiction...Progressing through Elisabeth Kubler-Ross's five stages of death and dying-denial, anger, bargaining, grief, and acceptance-she expertly creates scenes spiced with dialog to convey her emotions.Good reading; recommended."
"Library Journal"

"Finnamore, already an accomplished novelist, easily makes the transition to creative nonfiction. Progressing through Elisabeth Kubler-Ross's five stages of death and dying - denial, anger, bargaining, grief, and acceptance - she expertly creates... a treatise on an important subject in family relations - divorce - describing how she learned of her ex-husband's infidelity, realized he wasn't the right man for her, struggled as a single mother, and came to terms with losing her status as a "happily married woman." Recommended.
