9780986000799: The End of Eve: A Memoir

At age 39, Ariel Gore has everything she’s always wanted: a successful writing career, a long-term partnership, a beautiful if tiny home, a daughter in college and a son in preschool. But life’s happy endings don’t always last. If it’s not one thing, after all, it’s your mother. Her name is Eve. Her epic temper tantrums have already gotten her banned from three cab companies in Portland. And she’s here to announce that she’s dying. Pitifully, Ariel,” she sighs. You’re all I have.” Ariel doesn’t want to take care of her crazy dying mother, but she knows she will. It’s the right thing to do, isn’t it? And, anyway, how long could it go on? Don’t worry,” Eve says. If I’m ever a burden, I’ll just blow my brains out.” Amidst the chaos of clowns and hospice workers, pie and too much whiskey, Ariel’s own ten-year relationship begins to unravel. Darkly humorous and intimately human, The End of Eve redefines the meaning of family and everything we’ve ever been taught to call love.”

From the Back Cover:


Ariel Gore is the author of the best-selling Hip Mama Survival Guide and How to Become A Famous Writer as well as the publisher of Hip Mama Magazine, which will relaunch at the same time as the publication of her memoir, The End of Eve, on March 1, 2014. Both in print and on the website Hip Mama Magazine will support and promote this memoir. In any given year, almost 30% of the U.S. population will be caring for an ill, disabled, or aging friend or family member, so The End of Eve speaks to the baby boomer audience sandwiched between taking care of both their children and their parents. In addition, Ariel's story includes her break-up with her long time girlfriend and will appeal to the LGBT and the women's memoir audience.

About the Author:

Ariel Gore is the publisher of Hip Mama Magazine. Her books include Bluebird: Women and the New Psychology of Happiness; How to Become a Famous Writer Before You’re Dead; The Traveling Death and Resurrection Show; Atlas of the Human Heart; and The Hip Mama's Survival Guide. She lives in Santa Fe, NM.
