Hell Hath No Fury: Women's Letters from the End of the Affair

Hell Hath No Fury: Women's Letters from the End of the Affair Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this extensively researched collection, editor Anna Holmes has amassed an inspirational, historical, and highly entertaining collection of letters from women across the centuries (both known and unknown, fictional and real). From Heloise (of Abelard and Heloise) in the twelfth century, to writer and co-executive producer of Sex in the City Cindy Chupack in the twenty-first; from mad missives and caustic communiques to downhearted dispatches and sweet send-offs, Hell Hath No Fury is the most comprehensive collection on the shelf of letters from the end of the affair. Featuring: the tell off, the other man, the just friends, the unrequited, the marriage refusal, the slow fade, the string-along, the you've changed, and reams of other romantic rants, ruminations, and reckonings, included here are correspondences from Agnes Von Kurowsky to Ernest Hemingway, Rebecca West to H. G. Wells, Stella Bowen to Ford Maddox Ford, Nina Eliza Pinchback Toomer, mother of Harlem Renaissance writer and philosopher Jean Toomer, to her estranged husband, Dorothy Thompson to Sinclair Lewis, Candida Royalle, adult film star, to an ex, Jennifer Belle, author of Going Down and High Maintenance to an ex, Kate Christensen, author of In the Drink and Jeremy Thrane to an ex, Lucinda Rosenfeld, author of What She Saw to an ex, Monica Lewinsky to Bill Clinton, and many more.

Review:

"[L]iterary romantics will have fun thumbing through this unique assemblage of send-off notes." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[T]his book will be consoling to those who discover the universality of experiences and emotions." Library Journal

Review:

"Likely to provoke squirms of embarrassment from readers who may well recall an old adage: never put anything in writing." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Arranged chronologically within intriguing subject groupings, this collection is both involving and amusing, perfect either for a long read, or for 'dipping in' as the reader chooses." Booklist

Review:

"Wickedly entertaining....A cathartic collection." O, The Oprah Magazine
