From the national bestselling author of The Object of My Affection, Stephen McCauley, comes My Ex-Life, a novel about how sometimes the only way to move forward is to go back.
...adroit and affecting... The interwoven domestic plots and seaside setting allow McCauley, always a keen commentator on cultural mores, opportunity for witty observations on the Airbnb trend, the predictability of tourist traps...and high schoolers' stumbling efforts to write about themselves.
—San Francisco Chronicle
McCauley fits neatly alongside Tom Perrotta and Maria Semple in the category of “Novelists You'd Most Like to Drive Across the Country With” — fine company, indeed. And if there's more lust for real estate than actual lust within these pages, that feels appropriate for this idiosyncratic couple. From the time David shows up on Julie's stoop, the reader hopes against all hope that these two might figure out a way to head out to pasture, together.
—New York Times
