Yes, you. The one curled up on the couch crying into a ginormous glass (read: bottle) of wine, stuffing chocolate into your face and stalking your Ex on Insta after a shitty divorce or break up. Put the phone down and the chocolate away… (It’s OK the wine can stay).
Listen up. Beverly Ligman’s first book, Welcome to D-Town is here to help you deal with life after divorce and get back on the other ‘D’ horse (the dating kind – get your mind out of the gutter!).
It offers guidance* on how to deal with your own break-up or divorce trauma, including handy advice, tips and tricks to help you navigate the eight stages of divorce.
*Like how NOT to wake up with kebab in your hair next to some random dude who’s name you don’t remember
Beverly Ligman has seen her share of heartbreak. She was inspired to write Welcome To D-Town after a particularly shitty divorce back in 2014 (OK so… her BFF Nic may have helped come up with the idea).
(For example: you will need lots of Champagne. Buy in bulk), as well as hard hitting reality checks about what you think each stage looks like (you, hot to trot and being chased by boys) versus what it actually looks like (you, curled up on the couch crying into a bottle of wine… didn’t I tell you to put that down?!)
This book is your essential guide to dealing with the drama and devastation of break-ups and divorce. Always there to listen, non-judgey and totes understanding of your need to drink lots, hook up often and cry a lot. It’ll make you laugh. It might make you cry but it will help you get through this crappy time, heal and maybe… even love again.
