"A heartfelt debut, After Perfect depicts a woman's healing after divorce with grace and empathy. Maan Gabriel is an author to watch in contemporary women's fiction."
--Tif Marcelo, USA Today best-selling author of The Key to Happily Ever After

"Maan Gabriel's After Perfect is the story of a marriage and a divorce and the complexities of both. Gabriel explores how cultural expectations may not only inform decision-making but determine it. In clear prose and through vivid scenes, Maan Gabriel shows us this irony--often through relationships, we come to know ourselves."
--Corie Adjmi, author of Life and Other Shortcomings

"At once relatable and unexpected, After Perfect is the story of one woman's quest to learn to live--and love--on her own terms after heartbreak. Maan Gabriel is a refreshing new voice in women's fiction."
--Camille Pagán, bestselling author of Don't Make Me Turn This Life Around
