"Sex & The City meets The Wall Street Journal....Juicy, smart, dramatic and insightful--an addictive read."
--Beth Kobliner, author of Get a Financial Life: Personal Finance in Your Twenties and Thirties

In The Secret Currency of Love, edited by Hilary Black, acclaimed, bestselling, and award-winning women writers explore the fraught and powerful connections between love and money. As featured on the "Today Show"--with contributions by Karen Karbo, Kathryn Harrison, Lori Gottlieb, Julia Glass, Rebecca Traister, Dani Shapiro, Amy Sohn, and others--The Secret Currency of Love takes an unabashed look at relationships through the often-distorting lens of finance. As Elle magazine informs us, "All the bases are covered here, from the hard lessons women learn (and impart) to the inextricability of romance and cold hard cash."

Review quote

"Funny, insightful and brutally honest, this book is Sex & The City meets The Wall Street Journal, with a sprinkle of Dostoevsky. Hilary Black has inspired stellar writers to wax poetic (and at times, hilariously pathetic) on the last taboo: money. Juicy, smart, dramatic and insightful--an addictive read."--Beth Kobliner, author of Get a Financial Life: Personal Finance in Your Twenties and Thirties

Back cover copy

Money. It affects us all. So why is it so difficult for us to acknowledge its enormous impact on our private affairs?

In this riveting and provocative anthology of original essays, more than two dozen of America's most esteemed women writers share their deepest feelings about personal finance and how it profoundly influences their relationships with parents, children, spouses, siblings, lovers, and ultimately with themselves. Witty, nuanced, and startlingly intimate, The Secret Currency of Love offers a transformative look at the delicate nature of love and money while providing fascinating insight into how a modern generation of women is defining itself in the new social economy.

Contributors include Leslie Bennetts - Veronica Chambers - Julia Glass - Lori Gottlieb Kathryn Harrison - Sheri Holman - Ann Hood - Karen Karbo - Dani Shapiro - Amy Sohn
