Blessed with beauty and brains, television writer Tracy McMillan was not only able to parlay her talents into a killer Hollywood career but also able to attract a rather eclectic assortment of men as well. Unfortunately, the "right" kind of men felt wrong all too often, while the "wrong" ones felt so, so right. The result was three failed marriages and countless catastrophic romances, all by the age of forty. Despite Tracy's successful ascension into the privileged world of pool houses, premieres, and big-time producer deals, she just couldn't break her pattern of questionable choices in matters of the heart. That is, until she finally figured out her relationship with the first man she ever loved: her father, a wildly flamboyant pimp, drug dealer, and convicted felon who spent most of his daughter's life behind bars . . . and until she set about raising the son who taught her everything else she needed to know about men, love, and life.

I Love You and I'm Leaving You Anyway is the comic, tragic, unflinchingly real, and ultimately victorious true story of how one woman learned to love herself no matter what. It is an inspiring testament to the power of change that proves we can all grow from even our most flawed relationships.
