Publisher Comments:

Who says you have to take life's punches without fighting back? Whether you're breaking up, breaking down, or just at the breaking point, Kiss Off will help you say goodbye to everything that's holding you back and jump-start your life. From Andrew Marvell to Deborah Garrison, from Langston Hughes to Grace Paley, this liberating collection of poems and insightful commentary will inspire you to cut your losses, welcome renewal, and become the fabulous person you always knew you could be.

Review:

"[W]hen you've had enough and need to say goodbye to all that, there's Kiss Off....By the time readers reach the 'Believing: When You Stay Strong' section, they'll have absorbed a lot of poetry in the process of clearing the psychic decks." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

The editors of The Hell with Love are back, applying their irreverent view of life and love to help melt the hardest heart. For anyone who's been let down by life and love, these poems reveal that the most important person one can fall in love with is oneself.

This was a wonderful book. I could not stop reading it. It was as if the author knew my heart and how I felt at any given moment. I recommend it to anyone who is having trials in their lives.
