Former husband neglected to tell me at that time that the impetus for him ending the marriage was because he fell for a former student, a woman he subsequently hired as a work colleague. Frankly she was as complicit as Ex. in the end of the marriage. After all, takes 2 to tango.
As Ex was sailing out the door, he implored me to 'just get over it, it's 'no big deal, everyone gets divorced.' It was as though he equated the end of a lengthy marriage with the inconvienence of a shoe lace coming untied.
In an effort to attempt to cope, I bought a stack of divorce books 12 inches high. They were depressing, and only added to my sheer misery. Further, they provided inane solutions for problems of an unimaginable magnitude.
Good Riddance contextualized all of the destruction of divorce with Insight and HUMOR.
In 'Good Riddance' Cynthia Copeland provides the first accurate, humorous and ultimately hopeful book about divorce.
I am so grateful.
I highly recommend it to anyone who has ever gone through a breakup or wants to read a funny uplifting book.

I highly recommend this graphic novel to anyone who has ever been through a breakup. It's an accessible, touching and inspirational memoir with just the right dose of humor. And ultimately, I just love that it's something completely different--Copeland brings a woman's voice to a genre usually dominated by male writers, and she reflects on a difficult topic in a surprisingly earnest and funny way. Five stars.
Ms. Copeland's presentation is captivating. It has humor, surely pathos, just
everyday decisions requiring life to continue.
Highly recommend and the art portrayal seems to that the sting out of the
sadness of the situation.
