Tragedy plus time equals comedy, right? In 2011, comedian Rosie Wilby was dumped by email. .. though she did feel a little better about it after correcting her ex's spelling and punctuation. Obsessing about breakups ever since, she embarked on a quest to investigate, understand and conquer the psychology of heartbreak. That quest proved to be a creatively fertile one, resulting in Rosie's acclaimed podcast The Breakup Monologues. She decided to ask her colleagues on the circuit about their experiences of romantic disaster and recovery, thinking, 'if one group of people have become adept at learning from catastrophe it is comedians. The worst onstage deaths are the performances that enlighten us most about how to improve.' She wondered if comics had been able to transfer this 'fail better' logic to love. This book is a love letter to her breakups, a celebration of what they have taught her peppered with anecdotes from illustrious friends and interviews with relationship therapists, scientists and sociologists about separating in the modern age of ghosting, breadcrumbing and conscious uncoupling. Her plan is to assimilate their advice and ideas in order to not break up with Girlfriend, her partner of nearly three years. Will this self-confessed serial monogamist, and breakup addict, finally settle down?

    As this book was written by a comedian, I really expected it to be full of funny but disastrous stories about love and life, Unfortunately however it was not and I really had to push myself to keep on reading it. I wish that I had some better things to say about this book but just it wasn't for me. Thanks to NetGalley and the publishers for an advanced digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Did enjoy this book. Anyone who has gone through any type of break up ever will relate to something within this book. Some really laugh out loud moments, some cringe, and some not for the faint hearted. Did expect a more essay like style of people's stories, but it very much wasn't like that at all- but not to its detriment. Narrator changes/structure felt a little scrambled at times but a good read overall. Did enjoy this book.

    I really enjoyed this book - I think it gave an honest account of how painful breakups can be, but also the personal growth that can happen from them. The structure/chapter headings were a little confusing but I'd still definitely recommend this book.
