The Ex-Wife's Survival Guide - Debby Holt Summary
Right before Sarah Stagg's teenage sons leave the nest, her husband, Andrew, the star of their local dramatic club, leaves her for his twentysomething leading lady, Hyacinth. Sarah, a freelance artist, quickly discovers that the path of a discarded wife is strewn with hazards and humiliations. Her neighbors and friends treat her like she has the plague. And her soon-to-be-ex wants to sell the house she's spent years turning into her dream home. Her best friend Miriam offers one concrete piece of advice: Sarah should keep busy -- and with Andrew and Hyacinth on a sabbatical from their acting group, what better distraction than the theater? To Sarah's horror, she is promptly given the starring role intended for Hyacinth. She wonders if she should write a survival guide for ex-wives. Her first chapter could be titled "How to Invite Utter Humiliation to Your Life in Front of an Entire Town and Watch Your Heartbreak Magically Melt Away." Then Sarah runs into the biggest crush of her youth. Now Sarah has more -- better -- advice to add to the list: Confront your past. Revel in the present. Be open to romance. But despite her new love interest, Sarah wonders if she's actually dealing or just having fun dreaming up sage words for women scorned. Will she ever truly understand what it means to live wisely and independently?

God's Ex-Wife - David M. Woodland,Jessica Hernandez Summary
God's Ex-Wife is a "novoir" (part novel/part memoir) in which anecdotes from both authors' lives are woven into a work of fiction, though every character in the story was inspired (at least in part) by an actual person who left an impact on David, Jessica, or both. We never stop learning, and everyone who enters our life is a teacher of sorts (though life itself is the ultimate teacher!) God's Ex-Wife, despite the name, is not about religion; It's about choice, identity, love, education, friendship, and HOPE. It has never been harder to be young in America, especially as a misfit. There is a whole country between New York and Los Angeles, and much of that region is little more than ""The MoFN"" (Middle of F**king Nowhere). This book is offered as a beacon to the young people in those places who-- because of their sexuality, their race, or merely their independent spirit -- have never ""fit in."" We see you. We appreciate you. And we do NOT want you change. But we do want you to leave. You want it too, and we want to empower you to do that. The MoFN (Middle of F**king Nowhere) is no kind of place for a big, Jewish girl with strange clothes, or her only friend: a gay boy with even stranger clothes. But for now that's exactly where Debbie and Phil are stuck. Growing up in the 90's in a cold New England town with nothing to do, no exposure to the world beyond, or experience with people of color (who will eventually play a huge role in their lives), and bullied on a daily basis, they turn to their love of writing and performing , initially as an escape from their monotone misery, and an antidote to their boredom. It is only through the efforts of Mrs. Rosen, Debbie's eccentric and sophisticated mentor, that they realize how far their talents might actually take them. But is there more to Debbie's weirdness than just punk rock and black nail polish? Long since divorced from religion, she is not exactly big on faith. So how does Debbie know what she knows? She can't even answer that herself.
The Ex-Wife Joke Book - Dick Hertz Summary

Immature, superficial, and misogynistic, it doesn't get any better than the jokes collected here by ex-wife expert Dick Hertz. After all, even though his marriage only lasted six months, it sure did feel like a lifetime. Dick Hertz's pain is your gain when you stop crying into your beer and start laughing in your ex-wife's face. Cheaper than therapy (or a taking a hit out), this book will remind you why you went from "I do" to "I don't"-and why you should get "Never again!" tattooed across your forehead. So stop thinking about her, and start toasting your great escape. She might have the house and the dog, but at least you got this cool book of jokes.
