"A gorgeous, darkly humorous memoir for readers of Cheryl Strayed about a woman overcoming dramatic loss and finding reinvention, as well as a portrait of a generation used to assuming they're entitled to everything--based on this award-winning writer's New Yorker article 'Thanksgiving in Mongolia'"-- "In 2012, at age 38, when she left on a reporting trip to Mongolia, Ariel Levy thought she had figured it out: she was married, pregnant, successful on her own terms, financially secure. A month later, none of that was true. 'People have been telling me since I was a little girl that I was too fervent, too forceful, too much. I thought I had harnessed the power of my own strength and greed and love to a life that could contain it. But it has exploded.' In gorgeous, moving, humorous, sharp, and unforgettable prose, with pointillist portraits of a girl and then a young woman coming of age, Levy describes her own ill-fated assumptions: thinking that anything is possible, that the old rules do not apply; that marriage doesn't have to mean monogamy; that gender and sexuality are fluid; that aging doesn't have to mean infertility. This is a searing story, written with humor, brilliance, and insight, that is at once personal and universal--a story about realizing that life is so often beyond our control, and how we forge ahead despite that. In telling her own story, Levy has captured a portrait of our time, of the shifting forces in values, women and gender in American culture, of what has changed and what has remained"--… (lisätietoja)

This is a hard one to review for me: One the one hand, Ariel Levy goes through a lot of awful experiences all at once and seems to have come out the other side; something that I have to give her a great deal of credit for. On the other hand, there were several points where I just wanted to shake her repeatedly until she realized she's not a super special individual, she's just being an asshole. ( )

About halfway through the book I found out by reading a review here that the writer's actual baby didn't actually die, and neither did her partner. Which comes as something of a shock because she literally SAYS they died in the prologue.

I was having a hard time reading the book by the halfway point because the writing is so choppy and the writer is so deeply un-self-reflective, and .. just.. shallow, entitled, and *stupid*, for all her cleverness. It's very hard to root for her. But I was prepared to soldier on because I thought I was bearing witness to the story of someone who has lost her baby.

Heck I would even have continued reading it if she had straight-up said in the beginning that her life changing event was a miscarriage in her fifth month of pregnancy and a divorce. If she had been blunt and honest. Trauma is trauma, in my book, I do not believe in Trauma Olympics where the "winner" worth reading is she who has suffered the objectively-worst losses. She could have been honest, and I would have read her book.

But this is unconscionable. She's clearly remained the same mercenary, self-aggrandizing asshole she was from the start, if she can so coldly and calculatedly exaggerate her trauma only to hook more readers and sell more copy. Shame on her.

The title is a warning. You are reading someone who thinks she doesn't have to follow any of the rules. ( )

Ariel Levy writes so well that I was immediately hooked into reading this book even though I have a large stack of books to read. The problem with this style of writing is that the story has no happy resolution. The style of writing is called the Romantic Loser because they strive to get ahead and never do. It can be frustrating to read if you are expecting a romantic happy ending. ( )
