The novel that inspired the acclaimed Rebecca Miller film Maggie's Plan, starring Julianne Moore, Ethan Hawke, and Greta Gerwig.

 Isabel, Anna, Beth, and Maggie are women who aren’t afraid to take it all. Whether spearheading a pregnancy lingerie company, conspiring to return a husband to his ex-wife, lusting after an old lover while in a satisfying marriage, or trying to balance motherhood and work—they are sexy, determined, and not looking for a simple happily ever after. Through punchy, hilarious, and insightful storytelling, The End of Men shatters the confines of society, and more importantly, those we impose upon ourselves.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Four women support one another throughout [a] year of transition…[with] perceptive observations on modern motherhood and womanhood…Entertaining and insightful.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “By using modern media to ask age-old questions, Rinaldi has crafted an incisive yet tender look at the high points and heartbreak of motherhood.”


  • “With humor, bravery, and panache, Karen Rinaldi puts her finger straight on the tender conundrum of the female experience, where work, love, and motherhood intersect.”

    Rebecca Miller, director of Maggie’s Plan

  • “Cool and hot, sweet and sharp, The End of Men is a beguiling modern tale of four self-made women who are doing it their way, and the men who’re along for the ride. I read it in one sitting, without checking my phone. A novel can’t possibly come more highly recommended than that.”

    Karen Karbo, author of The Gospel According to Coco Chanel

  • “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.”

    Betsy Lerner, author of The Bridge Ladies
