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 & Awards

  • “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

    " Laughed my behind off. Very sarcastic and biting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kennetha Brown | 1/17/2014

    " Completely pointless; a waste of time. Couldn't follow the plot/story! :/ "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arlene | 1/11/2014

    " I think I dated this guy! Super funny! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 1/1/2014

    " Clever and ultimately satisfying, but not as funny as the jacket copy would have you believe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 1/1/2014

    " I really enjoyed this one about a girl in college in Cambridge and a cad she's in love with. It's very cheeky. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anastasia | 12/29/2013

    " I love the humor in this book; very dry and laugh-out-loud "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 12/15/2013

    " Fun and witty, but not terribly engrossing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Bellon | 12/12/2013

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meredith | 12/1/2013

    " given to me by publisher friend. decent, I finished it. Not memorable "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristiana | 11/23/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brooke | 11/17/2013

    " starts out really funny, though not in a laugh-out-loud way...eventually the neurosis gets old and not nearly as funny. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Audrey | 10/22/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julia Shumway | 9/8/2013

    " This book isn't, like, one constant laugh, but it is a whole bunch of disparate laughs. It was a very fulfilling and validating read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 8/24/2013

    " 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. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 morgan | 5/26/2013

    " 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! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aharon | 5/13/2013

    " It's funny (esp at the beginning), but it's no shopping column in the New Yorker. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 1/25/2013

    " the "plot" was silly and the main character quite pathetic, but the writing was wonderfully hilarious, insightful, and entertaining. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. "

    " Even though I wanted to smack the main characters around a bit, I still really enjoyed this novel - it was very well written (with a unique, casual style) and funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimber | 2/1/2012

    " Ok, this book is not for everyone, but I found it very funny. The book gets a little racy in some parts, but overall, it was hilarious. If you're not too easily offended, I'd recommend this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynne | 12/20/2011
