It is a certain kind of fame, I suppose, to be publicly eviscerated. The man who left Statia is never identified, but he'll be easy to spot. He won't have any stuff and his testicles will have dropped off out of sheer disgust. This is a book of magic, great skill and cringes. I first "met" Statia on Instagram where she posted some of these images as a serialized catharsis of a breakup. Pain channeled by talent into images and captions will bring joy to the reader. There is a shared, voyeuristic pleasure in the photos here. Statia is funny, biting and seriously hot. The guy who left her is a fool forever and I hope he never sees this book. But everyone else should.

hahaha. I love this book! What a unique idea. I wish I had thought to do something this creative with my feelings after my own breakup. I think I'm going to send this to all my friends when they're going through break ups in the future. Everyone can relate...

i am so very proud of statia and her book! my copy finally arrived today, and i delighted in spending time with it. i really appreciated jason good's opening words about statia's presence, but most especially i liked his closing sentence, which read, "Righteous or not, it's art." RIGHT!! EXACTLY!! statia isn't gonna swallow her story for the sake of keeping others comfortable, and i love that about this project ~ it is a fierce and comical reclamation ... "i got this! i've been hurting, but i got this ... and your stuff, lol!" in summary: this book, a strong debut, kicked ass! the photos are absolutely superb, but we're talking about statia here ... i'd expect nothing less. treat yourself or gift this book to the creative folks in your life ~ highly recommended.

I recently went through a breakup myself and a friend sent me the link to this book. It's funny and quirky and kitschy and a topic that we can all relate to. The author does a good job at making this story sound universal and not just about her one particular story. I found myself laughing and nodding along in agreement to all of it. I'm going to buy this for all my single lady friends for Valentine's Day!

AMAZE!! so impressed with the writing and the photos...I know Statia's work, she has photographed me for work related projects and always admired her eye, she just captures the whole of a person!!...My daughter is a photography major and I purchased the book as a present so she can see the many places you can go with creative thoughts...Valerie

I really love this book! Its hard to imagine someone is capable to create such an amazing thing out of a relationship breakup. The whole story telling in these pictures is clever, fun and eye-catching and sexy. This book should be an inspiration for anyone who wants to move forward after a broken heart. Statia Grossman is a very talented woman! Lets not forget to mention that the quality of the book is great.

How clever to channel all the feelings that come after a breakup into cheeky photos! Great photos, clever captions and a visual journey towards healing. I can't imagine anyone who has ever had a breakup wouldn't relate to and love this book. I'm so happy for statia, you see! Great things always come out of a breakup! :) buy it, read it, love it!

Oh my God! What a fantastic book I loved the photographs and the puns. We can all relate to this. Stacia has a wonderful sense of humor and her portrayal of her ex is hilarious! You have to get this book, you won't be able to put it down!
