Description - Separation Anxiety: A novel full of heart and humour about one woman's stumbling search for happiness by Laura Zigman
'Separation Anxiety charmed me...it's quirky, comic, honest' MARIAN KEYES, author of GROWN UPS'Separation Anxiety was exactly what I needed for a change of pace, funny and charming' JUDY BLUMEIf you've ever wondered whether you love your dog more than your partner...Life hasn't gone according to Judy's plan. Her career as a children's book author has taken an embarrassing nose dive. Her teenage son Teddy treats her with a combination of mortification and indifference. Her best friend has enough to deal with. And her husband, Gary, has become a pot-addled 'snackologist' who she can't afford to divorce. On top of it all, she has a painfully ironic job writing articles for a self-help website-a poor fit for someone seemingly incapable of helping herself.Gleefully irreverent, tender, funny and uplifting, Separation Anxiety is a contemporary novel that celebrates the 'squeezed generation'; a book filled with heart and humour for anyone fumbling their way towards happiness.___________________________________________________Praise for Separation Anxiety 'My advice- Start reading and don't stop until you get to the last page of this wise and wonderful novel.' ALICE HOFFMAN'I adored this wise, funny, sad, quirky story...It's brilliant on the stories we tell ourselves and others in order to resist change, while beating ourselves up about not taking steps towards a happier future..' DAILY MAIL'Written with such humour and heart that'll make you laugh out loud and have a little sob simultaneously.' STYLIST'What a gem of a novel...It's laced with moments of self-doubt and marital mayhem, but also the many small daily acts of mercy and heroism that love inspires.' DIANE ACKERMAN'So sweetly funny, so very touching.' Sainsburys magazine' A novel about stress, release, and the unlikely places we turn to for comfort in uncertain times' VOGUE'Laura Zigman is able to home in on the most tender, revealing, exquisitely painful aspects of our relationships with others and with ourselves. And somehow she manages to come out the other end with hope.' CHELSEA HANDLER'I enjoyed Separation Anxiety very much... It has a real freshness of voice and though it is very poignant, several parts also made me laugh out loud' - LAURA BARNETT' Separation Anxiety is compassionate and funny, articulating with gentle humor the terrible things that we're all grappling with. To steal a phrase from my daughter, it made me happy-cry.' LAURA LIPPMAN
