Oksana | 2 comments Going through one right now. Can not read happy-fluffy books about love,need something that resonates with what I am going through. With a bit of hope in it.
Eat, Pray, Love was good (although read it before it started)
Any other recommendations?

Mia (HotWolfie) | 46 comments I'm so sorry about your divorce, Oksana.

Here's a few "non-fluffy" books (all fiction) that deal with divorce:


1. Wonder Boys by Michael Chabon, this is a dark drama/comedy about a twice divorced college professor, who is on the brink of a third divorce, struggling to accept his failed career, and tries to infuse hope into a suicidal student.


2. The Kitchen God's Wife by Amy Tan deals with the a secret marriage/divorce that a mother kept hidden from her daughter. This is my favorite of her books.

3. Kramer vs. Kramer, a little dated, but it's a quick read.

4. Closer (a stageplay) deals with not only divorce, but the decaying relationships of several people.


Oksana | 2 comments Thank you, Mia! All of them sound really good.


Mirvan  Ereon (mirvanereon) | 71 comments Well, there is a book called LE DIVORCE.. it's a fun chick flick book and it has a movie too =P


Lennie (wwwgoodreadscomprofileLennie) | 133 comments You might also try How Stella Got Her Groove Back by Terry McMillan. It's about a divorced woman who finds her mojo again after a trip to Jamaica. There's a movie for this one too.
