Reviews

"Ever wish you had a really articulate, thoughtful friend who had the guts to tell you every important and ridiculous thing about her marriage? Allow me to introduce you to the wise and generous Elizabeth Weil. You'll love her." --Kelly Corrigan, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Middle Place "and" Lift"

"Marriage is a legal bond, a love affair, a trap, a safety net, a financial partnership. In her wise, charming, and dizzyingly forthright new book, Elizabeth Weil examines this mercurial institution. And she does it the hard way--by taking a long look at her own marriage. Her courage is our boon: "No Cheating, No Dying" is an utterly necessary, compulsively readable depiction of the way married people live now." --Claire Dederer, author of Poser


"Weil approaches this creative act with unfaltering self awareness, and this is what makes her pursuit so successful and readable. Indeed, the author's own surprise at what she finds when rooting around the depths of her union translates to moments of unanticipated beauty on the printed page." -"Booklist"
"A whip smart and contagiously humorous attempt to address the eternal conundrum of domestic ennui and its discontents." --Elle
"What ultimately makes No Cheating, No Dying such a thrilling read is the way Weil fiercely includes the reader in the secret life of her marriage." -- Knoxville MetroPulse
"Quite wonderful . . . an astonishingly intimate, hilariously self-deprecating, vibrant and thoroughly modern memoir." -- San Francisco Chronicle
"Part experiment, part memoir -- told with candor and grace. . . . " -- New Jersey Star Ledger
"An engaging, often funny and heartfelt memoir about the not-so-romantic realities that can follow 'I do.'" -- Tampa Bay Times
"The story of their marriage-improvement journey is both hilarious and insightful." -- The New York Times Book Review

Marriage is complicated andElizabeth Weil's is no exception: Loving, overall happy, but complicated. But her openness about this and pledge to improve the relationship makes for a wonderfully compelling and inspiring memoir. The book will provide many insights to anyone who is married, considering marriage -- or hellbent on avoiding it." A. J. Jacobs, author of "The Year of Living Biblically "and "Drop Dead Healthy"


"This is such a smart and rich and insightful book (sometimes painfully funny, other times funnily painful) about what it really takes to keep the turbines of modern marriage going. Reading this memoir, I found myself rooting not only for Liz and Dan, but for all of us -- all married couples who've been humbled by life and stress, but who keep struggling and striving, year after year, to somehow keep it together." --Elizabeth Gilbert
