Ariel Gore’s memoir, The End of Eve, releases simultaneously with her reownership and relaunch of Hip Mama Magazine, about which The New Yorker said, “it’s the quality of the writing that sets Hip Mama apart,” and which USA Today called, “fun and irreverent.” The End of Eve is darkly humorous and intimately human, and plays like Terms of Endearment meets Whatever Happened to Baby Jane. Ariel becomes a reluctant caregiver to her dying mother, and amidst the chaos of clowns and hospice workers, pie and too much whiskey, her own ten-year relationship begins to unravel, forcing her to reconsider the meaning of family and everything she’s ever been taught to call “love.”

In any given year, almost 30% of the U.S. population will be caring for an ill, disabled, or aging friend or family member.

Extensive Seventeen-City Book Tour to include Austin; Denver; Seattle; Portland; Eugene; San Francisco; Berkeley; Santa Cruz; Los Angeles; Santa Fe; Albuquerque; Chicago; Iowa City; New York; Washington, DC; Baltimore; Kansas City; Philadelphia; and Spokane.

Ariel Gore is the publisher of Hip Mama Magazine. Her books include Bluebird: Women and the New Psychology of Happiness, How to Become a Famous Writer Before You’re Dead, The Traveling Death and Resurrection Show, Atlas of the Human Heart, and The Hip Mama’s Survival Guide. She lives in Oakland, California.
