    Story

    After having endured enough emotional wreckage in her search for true love to fill a book (The New York Times bestseller The Between Boyfriends Book), two magazine columns, and five seasons of scripts for Sex and the City, Cindy Chupack finally, mercifully, at the age of thirty-nine, met the Perfect Man. The perfect companion for anyone navigating a marriage (or even just contemplating one), The Longest Date marks the welcome return of one of our most gifted and captivating comic writers.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Longest Date the most enjoyable?

    The story was hilarious at points, touching at other times.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character, Cindy, was so relatable to what we have all been through.


    What does Cindy Chupack and Ian Wallach bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It was great hearing her read her own book - I love when authors read their own books.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I literally was laughing out loud at points. There were other points that I was crying as I was relating to the author. This was an amazingly well written book that brings the reader into the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I would STRONGLY recommend this book. I couldn't stop listening and wanted to turn it on at every free second I had. She is an amazing and talented writer (former Sex in the City writer) and writes about the real part of dating/marriage/trying to get pregnant. This was a fabulous book and I highly recommend it.

    Story
    (291)

    In this captivating memoir, Deborah Feldman takes listeners on an eye-opening journey into Orthodox Jewish culture. Raised in the suffocating world of Brooklyn’s Satmar Hasidim, Feldman was told what to read and who she was allowed to talk to. Married off at 17, she suffered from anxiety and was shamed by an inability to please her older husband. But after giving birth to a son at age 19, Feldman realized it was time to tear up her roots and make her own path in life.

    no - needed a break
