He came home from work. She fixed him a martini. He said she looked beautiful. And then he asked for a divorce. Suddenly Suzanne Finnamore was alone, with no idea of what to do next. How would she tell their friends he'd left her behind? What would she tell her young son? She downed the mandarin-flavoured vodka, she faced the news of her ex-husband's infidelity and suffered Valentine's Day alone. And with a lot of grit and her whiskey-toting mother's help, she found the hope and humour to pull through. From her darkest moments to the eventual freedom of life on her own, Suzanne's story will speak to anyone whose heart's been stamped on - and needed the strength to start afresh.

Brilliant, poignant and completely unique. Her voice captivates even the most jaded lovers Running With Scissors A sharp, cut-to-the-quick account of painful divorce... Riddled with a dry, deadpan humor, the author reconstructs this surreal journey. Finnamore conveys in this frank, winning memoir her supreme vulnerability and bravery. Publisher's Weekly
