"Winston's memoir is funny, sensitive, and in the end accomplishes what her ex-boyfriend's novel never could--brazenly tell a story of their relationship destined for the nonfiction shelves." --Booklist “The stories--snappy, sparse, and conversational--are no-holds barred.”--Women's Wear Daily “A heartfelt and hilarious look at single life in L.A.”--Hollywood Reporter “An unflinchingly honest tome that is so insightful and funny.”--New York Post “Perhaps it's not a typical tale. But then again, nothing is usual in the life of Hilary Winston as she hilariously chronicles in her [book]. . . . Winston bares it all with comedic flair, from seeing just what her ex-boyfriend thought of their five years together (in a nationally distributed novel, no less) to all the not-so-glorious relationships that came before and after.”--Metro New York “Winston's story is emotionally revealing, easy to relate to, and always hilarious.”--Back Stage “With self-deprecating schadenfreude, Community writer Hilary Winston sets her relationship story straight.”--More magazine
“A laugh-out-loud, tell-all in which Hilary sets the record straight for all her exes.”--WPIX 11 Morning News
“Winston's guiding philosophy appears to be: If it's too embarrassing to talk about, publish it. Her brutal, naked honesty is what anchors the book and makes it both so moving and so entertaining.”--Slate.com
