Hard-hitting and frank, this is an entertaining reflection on divorce and starting all over again.
Funny, honest, confronting and wise, this is a bitter-sweet true story of breaking up . . . and breaking through.
‘I hear you’re divorced?’ a friend greets me. ‘Congratulations!’
The Divorce Diaries outlines the difficult and often heart-breaking process of leaving a marriage and starting over. Sarah Quigley has garnered numerous accolades for her articles on the subject, including Columnist of the Year in the MPA Awards. Now she revisits and reconsiders the tumultuous months leading up to exiting her marriage and the equally confusing emotions that followed.
Living in a tiny rooftop apartment, surrounded by glossy millionaire neighbours, Quigley begins the process of overcoming grief and loneliness. As she takes the first tentative steps back into the world of dating, she shares both her darkest and most hilarious moments as a divorcee.
