Because We All Have a Relationship We Need to Put to Rest

From your basic lying, cheating, no-good scum to those relationships that were doomed from the start (they were married to different people), to a man who faked his death, Relationship Obits is a voyeuristic romp through the unexplored underbelly of love and life. Kathleen Horan founded when a big breakup was followed two weeks later by the death of her father. Writing her father's obituary made her wonder what it would be like to write one for the end of her relationship. The Web site was born and thousands began to put their love to rest online. This collection is at times hilarious, raw, shocking, and poignant-a true celebration of love in all its manifestations.

Review quote

"REST in peace, dead relationships. A new book called -- what else? - `Relationship Obits' is here to serve as the perfect not-so-subtle hint to give to that moping, weeping friend who just can't seem to get over That One Ex." -- New York Post "A bittersweet testament to the beauty and trasience of love." -- The Sunday Times "A potent repository for readers' stories of love lost, captured in achingly or hilariously sincere tributes...The intimate (and omitted) details render these accounts heartbreaking and identifiable, each with the cathartic ring of long-held feelings finally released-or at least acknowledged-in concrete terms." -- Publishers Weekly "Poignant, clever, and sardonic." -- New Orleans Times-Picayune
