Fans of Andrew Sean Greer’s Less, will enjoy They Won’t Apologize for the Mess as they follow its main character, Story, through elaborate and hilarious schemes to run away from their problems. Fans of Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love will appreciate this spin on the contemporary divorce story, for its focus on breaking gender roles, savoring sins and simply remembering to eat: a Love, Pray, Eat if you will.

“Story is a difficult protagonist to pin down as she tries to find her way and work out how to pin herself down; and the structure was interesting too, with flashes of the story given to you rather than anything linear. I felt a great deal of sympathy for her; it made me think a lot about the way we feel our lives are supposed to go, and the things we are supposed to put up with. It’s creative and interesting and I can’t wait to see what the author writes next.”

-Lisa Tirreno, Author of Prince of Fortune
