9780006531487: How to Heal the Hurt by Hating

From romantic bliss to brutal break-up. Satirical and sharp, Anita Liberty re-invents self-help as she skewers her ex-boyfriend in this hilarious and audaciously candid collection of advice, poems and diary entries.

‘My boyfriend, Mitchell, whom I dated for three and a half years, left me for a woman named Heather, and, to get even, I have devoted my entire career to humiliating him in public.’

What better way to take revenge, to point the finger, to revel in someone else’s squirming misery than to write a book about how awful they are? This fierce, funny and ultimately liberating homage to being ‘dumped’ offers a red-hot therapy of wit, wisdom, rage and redemption.

‘I wish we were back together for just one night…so I could push you out of my loftbed while you were sleeping.’
