"I wish we were back together for just one night . . .

so I could push you out of my loftbed while you were sleeping."

Satirical and sharp, downtown New York City performance artist Anita Liberty reinvents self-help as she skewers her ex-boyfriend in this hilarious, hip, and audaciously candid collection of advice, poems, and diary entries.

"I thought you were a gifted and tortured artist.

I was wrong.

About the gifted part.


And the artist part."

From romantic bliss to brutal breakup, from heartache to healing, this fierce, funny, and ultimately liberating homage to being "dumped" rips off the stiff upper lip in favor of a red-hot therapy of wit, wisdom, rage, and redemption. And now, a few words from Anita Liberty . . .


Lowering my standards.

So you can meet them."

"You're a bad habit.

I want to kick you.


Inclues free postcards to send to that special someone!

I realized something today when I was in the elevator of this huge office building: chivalry is not dead. Far from it, much to my dismay. In crowded midtown office building elevators, male passengers insist on stepping aside to let female passengers off first. No matter if all the men are in the front of the elevator. No matter if the elevator is so akes all of us twice as long to get out the door. Well, I'd like to take the liberty of speaking for my gender when I say, "Just get off the goddamned elevator, you idiots! Just get off. Don't worry about me. Don't even think about me. When the doors open, just get out. Get out. You have one thing to remember and one thing only: Elevator stops. Doors open. Get the fuck out of my way."ADVICE FROM ANITA LIBERTYPeople talk a lot about"letting go"--how that's the only wayyou can truly get over a break-up and move on,the only way to show your strength and exhibit growth.Here's what I think about letting go: You don't have to.MORE FROM ANITA LIBERTYI know what people say about me."Anita Liberty's so angry.""Anita Liberty's so angry at men.""Anita Liberty just needs to get laid."And I'm like, you know...duh!
