Marti Lumbard Johnson is a 35-year-old schoolteacher from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, who—after his father committed suicide twenty years ago—changed his name from Martin to Marti because he did not want to bear the name of a man who he believed was a coward. Yet Marti has spent much of his life subscribing to lessons and views instilled in him by his father, one of which is his questioning the existence of God. 


When his co-worker of nearly four years, Leslie Mitchell, turned best friend, and consequently, the woman with whom he has fallen in love, yet who has never expressed any romantic notions toward him, comes back from summer vacation a Christian, Marti is forced to confront his own spirituality. However, he first finds distraction in the lovely Sasha, a beautiful woman who is ten years his junior. 

Marti is the story of divorce and estrangement and forgiveness and most especially, love, the need and desire for love—the love of a good woman, love of family, and the love of God.

“A gutsy book you need to read right now. Filled with heart and humor, it’s scary good.” —Courtney Love

Unwifeable is the “riveting” (Cheryl Strayed), “inspirational” (Issa Rae), “hilarious” (Candace Bushnell) debut memoir from notorious dating columnist Mandy Stadtmiller that is destined to “blow you away” (Colin Quinn). Critics call it “phenomenal” (Cat Marnell), “unflinching” (Elle), “brilliant” (BBC), “outrageously entertaining” (Booklist) and “a must-read” (BuzzFeed).

Provocative, fearless, and dizzyingly uncensored, Mandy spills every secret she knows about dating, networking, comedy, celebrity, media, psychology, relationships, addiction, and the quest to find one’s true nature. She takes readers behind the scenes (and name names) as she relays her utterly addictive journey.

Starting in 2005, Mandy picks up everything to move across the country to Manhattan, looking for a fresh start. She is newly divorced, thirty-years-old, with a dream job at the New York Post. She is ready to conquer the city, the industry, the world. But underneath the glitz and glamour, there is a darker side threatening to surface. The drug-fueled, never-ending party starts off as thrilling…but grows ever-terrifying. Too many blackout nights and scary decisions begin to add up. As she searches for the truth behind the façade, Mandy realizes that falling in love won’t fix her—until she learns to accept herself first.

This is a true New York fairy tale brought to life—Sex and the City on acid. Perfect for when “you feel stuck in some way and wish to become unstuck” (Caroline Kepnes), you’all soon see why Unwifeable is one of the best reviewed, most beloved memoirs of the year.
