About the Author

Ada Calhoun has written for the New York Times, New York magazine, and the New York Post. Her book St. Marks Is Dead was named a New York Times Editors' Choice and a Boston Globe Best Book of the Year.


Ada Calhoun has written the definitive meditation on marriage in all of its mystery and imperfection. It should be required reading for anyone considering it, and highly recommended for those who want to be reminded of why they did it in the first place.--Molly Ringwald
Ada Calhoun is the friend we all need--the one who lets us behind the curtain of her good marriage to help us better understand our own. She's smart, funny, and, best of all, willing to bare all.--Emma Straub, New York Times best-selling author of Modern Lovers
A warm, tart, corrective to the persistent conviction that a wedding is the neat end of a love story.--Rebecca Traister, New York Times best-selling author of All the Single Ladies
[Calhoun's] witty, enthusiastic, emotional, and hard-headed reflections ought to be required reading for anyone entering, experiencing, leaving or avoiding marriage.--Jonathan Sale
By turns funny, melancholy, and profound. A thoughtful read of the monogamous, non-monogamous, and every relationship iteration in between.
A fine gift to tuck between negligees and garter belts at the more literary bride's shower. A breezy, warm-hearted meditation on the nature of matrimony.... [Calhoun's] wry, likable voice is at its Ephronesque best.--Lisa Zeidner
Light and funny... original, engrossing.--Heather Havrilesky
Raise a glass to these reality-check essays that are equal parts ode to marriage... and sly acknowledgment of its challenges.--10 Titles to Pick Up Now
