About the Author
Praise For You Can Be Right (or You Can Be Married): Looking for Love in the Age of Divorce…
“A wonderful and important piece of thinking and reporting.”
--Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Committed: A Love Story and Eat, Pray, Love
"As a couples therapist, I witness daily the unraveling of adult intimacies. Dana Adam Shapiro's gripping testimonies of demise and divorce are written with vividness and aplomb—I felt as if he were eavesdropping in my office. A grand reportage of marriage and its discontents."
--Esther Perel, author of Mating in Captivity: Unlocking Erotic Intelligence
"A book about divorce written by a man who's never been married should be ridiculous. And yet I gobbled up this odd and touching and delicious book. I read it in a single sitting. And what's more, I learned something new about love and marriage and passion and commitment."
--Ayelet Waldman, author of Red Hook Road and Love and Other Impossible Pursuits
"After reading Dana Adam Shapiro's fascinating and revealing book, I will never again take my marriage for granted. I would write more, but I have to go buy some scented candles and tidy up the kitchen."
--A.J. Jacobs, author of Drop Dead Healthy: One Man’s Humble Quest for Bodily Perfection
