THE NOVEL THAT INSPIRED THE FILM MAGGIE'S PLAN

Four New York City women push the boundaries of convention to live life according to their own rules. The novel that inspired the acclaimed Rebecca Miller film Maggie's Plan, starring Julianne Moore, Ethan Hawke, and Greta Gerwig.

New Yorkers Isabel, Anna, Beth, and Maggie aren’t afraid of having it all. And they do: satisfying careers, children they love, adoring men, and one another. So what could possibly go wrong?

But trouble begins one morning when Beth arrives at the headquarters of Red Hot Mama—her sexy lingerie line for pregnant women—to find morally enraged protesters congregating outside. While Beth and her publicist Maggie are invigorated by the press, CFO Anna, already overwhelmed by work and home commitments, starts to lose it. And when one of the protesters shows more sinister intents, they are all forced to take action.

Love lives are no less complicated: Anna’s sister Isabel is married and pregnant but craving the affections of an old, unconsummated flame. Maggie, whose husband left his previous wife for her, has decided she’d like to send him back. Her solution: play matchmaker between her husband and his ex-. And Beth must contend with the impending death of her closeted ex-husband, the father of her adored daughter.

These fierce friends take on the world with tenacity, astuteness, and laughter and aren’t afraid to live life on their own terms. A smart, insightful, incendiary read, The End of Men challenges the boundaries set by our world and, more importantly, those that we impose on ourselves.

Editorial Reviews

“In Karen Rinaldi’s coy and sprawling novel men still matter. Only we see them through the eyes of four brilliant and fierce women for whom having it all is very much a work in progress. Anna, Beth, Isabel and Maggie collectively are like the phases of the moon: hormonally, emotionally and romantically attuned. Expertly woven together, their voices become a New York City tableau of marriage, children, life, death, careers, pregnancy tests, love and, um, men.”
