Publisher Description

Former Saturday Night Live writer Patricia Marx brings her clever, deadpan humor to this addictively readable novel about one woman’s comic obsession with her first boyfriend.

A neurotic young graduate student looking for distraction from her doomed thesis is inexplicably swept off her feet by a narcissistic philosophy professor. The obsession continues even after he has dumped her for someone even needier and she has given up on school and become a television writer. Meeting again in New York, they begin an adulterous affair that, of course, can only end in some kind of crisis.

Smart, lively, and original, Him Her Him Again The End of Him is an endlessly entertaining reimagining of the comedy of manners.

Quotes

  • “Alert, alive, and funny. I laughed at its audacity and cried that I didn’t write it.”

    - Steve Martin
  • “Patricia Marx is one of the finest comic writers of her time, as readers of the New Yorker and fans of Saturday Night Live already know. Her fiction debut is an endlessly entertaining comic novel about one woman’s romantic fixation on her first boyfriend.”

    - New Yorker
  • “Who hasn’t been stuck on a guy who didn’t deserve it? Still, as common as the experience may be, the book is a rare creature: an entertaining romp of a novel whose sass and smarts elevate it well above the “chick lit” label.”

    - New York Public Library 
  • “This humorous novel, filled with wacky and slightly off-kilter characters, is recommended for hip, urban readers who enjoy comedies of manners.”

    - Library Journal
  • “A sprawling but very funny tale; if insecurity is the source of great humor, Marx has hit the mother lode.”

    - Kirkus Reviews

    " Hilarious. Marx is clever and nutty at every turn. A great read for someone currently in graduate school! Just the dissertation titles alone make it worth reading. "

    " This is a snippy story about a girl and a boy. In parts it is really funny (like on the first page when said girl compares herself to sylvia plath), and other parts it is a bit self-involved. I listened to it while I worked, and it made my work day much more enjoyable. "

    " This is a 2007 book I got from library. So far is OK, but the main character is sort of pathetic, but in a way I can identify with, just a little extreme. "

    " I absolutely loved this book and recommended it to many-a-person. It's the story of one neurotic woman's quest for love and career. I would not lop this into the dreaded "chick-lit" genre, but it is woman-centric. It is funny and ironic without being trite. "

    " this book was not as funny as i thought it was going to be. the author used to be a writer for saturday night live, but it must have been one of the many stages when the show really wasn't that funny because this book was just plain bad. the relationship that the book revolves around is horrible!
