Who's Publishing What: Crazy to Leave You

Crazy to Leave You, the latest from Marilyn Simon Rothstein, takes readers on the journey of Lauren Leo, a forever dieting 41-year-old who is finally about to get married … until she’s dumped at the altar via text message — to her younger sister

What happens next forces Lauren on a road to healing and self-acceptance, but only if she can deal with her mother’s advice to freeze her eggs and stay slim, or the older sister, a flamboyant actress, hanging out on her couch. Filled with hilarious mishaps, dysfunctional family drama and happy accidents that lead to love, Crazy to Leave You will warm hearts while simultaneously aching their cheeks from laughing.  

Perfect for book clubs or to pack in your beach bag, Crazy to Leave You delivers a heroine readers will root for and an inspiring tale of second chances.  

Marilyn is the author of Husbands and Other Sharp Objects and Lift and Separate, winner of the Star Award presented by the Women’s Fiction Writers Association for Outstanding Debut.  

She grew up in New York City, earned a degree in journalism from New York University, began her writing career at Seventeen magazine, married a man she met in an elevator and owned an advertising agency for more than 25 years. She enjoys speaking at book festivals and community events.
