The End of Eve

  • nonfiction / memoir

How Ariel puts human tenderness on the page is an act of poetry damn close to sublime.

Tom Spanbauer
Author of In The City of Shy Hunters

At age 39, Ariel Gore has everything she’s always wanted: a successful writing career, a long-term partnership, a beautiful if tiny home, a daughter in college and a son in preschool. But life’s happy endings don’t always last. If it’s not one thing, after all, it’s your mother.

Knock knock.
