How to Fall Out of Love Madly

Three women confront the compromises they’ve made to appease the men they love in this razor-sharp, emotionally resonant novel from an author who “makes a particular female experience vivid, centered, seen” (Elle)

“In an even-more-impressive continuation of the work she began with her debut, The Girl Who Never Read Noam Chomsky (2018), Casale has again taken the detritus of women’s inner lives...and made something funny, warm, and compelling; something sisterly in the finest sense of the word"
