Marriage fit Stephanie Klein like a glove . . . but unfortunately it fit her husband like a noose. She thought she had the perfect marriage, but just like that, Klein found herself "divorced when you're firm, fashionable, and let's face it—fetching." Celebrated bloggist, photographer, and freelance writer Stephanie Klein lets it all hang out in this juicy tell-all tracing her jump back into single life following her divorce. On the dating advice of her therapist, Klein attempts to keep "a pair and a spare" of men always at hand and has lots of bawdy fun along the way. But when the anniversary of the devastating breakup from her "wasband" forces her to revisit what happened, she finds herself wanting more than her therapist's recommended gimmick to keep her emotionally safe. Straight Up and Dirty demonstrates that the true measure of success isn't what's crossed off life's to-do list. It's having the grace and fortitude to move through change, curls intact and smiling. less
Absolutely wonderful. Kinda sad how it mirrors parts of my life and some of my horrendous relationships. I am glad to know there are people out there that are going through the same thing as me and have some of the same ways of thinking about things
At the beginning of this book I felt like this girl was spoiled and I had nothing in common with her. By the end of the book I realized that I respected her and felt like our lives were more similar than I thought. This was actually a very honest book.
