***ABOUT THE BOOK*** So that was it. You send your fiancé to the dry cleaners one day and he comes back gay. When Kiri Blakeley’s fiancé made his shocking announcement, she did what she does best—cracked a joke. But when the realization that her ten-year relationship was built on lies began to settle in, she screamed…then drank…and spent the ensuing months in a foggy new world of sexual encounters.With the vulnerability of Julie Metz, vulgarity of Chelsea Handler, and hilarity of Rachel Shukert, Blakeley recounts her deeply emotional—and physical—journey from disbelief and debauchery to independence and insight…of learning to make out on public pool tables…and love—whatever that means—again. ***ABOUT THE AUTHOR*** For ten years Kiri Blakeley was a writer for Forbes magazine, where she covered entertainment, fashion, lifestyle, technology, travel, wealthy people, and entrepreneurs. She graduated from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. She lives in Brooklyn. ***MORE INFO*** http://www.ILoveAuthors.com and http://kiriblakeley.com/
