The bestselling author of The Between Boyfriends Book and an award-winning writer for Sex and the City and Modern Family takes a hilarious, heartbreaking look at marriage.

Cindy Chupack has spent much of her adult life writing about dating and relationships for several hit television series and as a sex columnist for O, The Oprah Magazine. At the age of thirty-nine, she finally found “the one”—and a wealth of new material.

Marriage, Cindy discovered, was more of an adventure than she ever imagined, and in this collection of essays she deftly examines the comedy and cringe-worthy aspects of matrimony. Soulful yet self-deprecating, The Longest Date recounts her first marriage and the meeting of her second husband, Ian.

After the courtship and ceremony, both Cindy and Ian realized that happily ever after takes some practice and near constant negotiation over everyday matters like cooking, sex, holidays, monogamy, and house guests. The Longest Date takes a serious turn when it comes to infertility.

The Longest Date is the perfect companion for anyone navigating a serious relationship, be it newlyweds or couples moving in that direction.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Amusing…The collection is a nice read for a general audience—and especially for those who enjoyed Chupack’s work on television shows such as Sex in the City, Everyone Loves Raymond, and Coach and magazines such as Glamour and O, The Oprah Magazine.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Chupack gifts readers with an inside look at her messy marriage in a memoir that is alternately laugh-out-funny and surprisingly poignant…Chupack is so upfront about her emotions that she quickly becomes more an old friend than ‘the author’…Chupack is most compelling, however, when she focuses on the ordinary hard truths of coupledom. She talks man caves, old flames, and uneven earning potential and ponders the allure of bad boys, the acquisition of a pet, and blending households. Chupack’s engaging page-turner is a natural for book clubs, and there’s already talk of a TV series.”


  • “A straight-talking, funny, and poignant memoir.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “The characters on Sex and the City (for which Cindy Chupack wrote) could never wait to get together and share the most scintillating details of their romantic triumphs and tribulations. Opening Cindy’s book is like getting invited to lunch with those women—the details are keenly observed, laugh-out-loud funny, and you never want the meal to end.”

    Cynthia Nixon, actress

  • “If you need a new best friend—look no further! Cindy Chupack’s wonderful book will make you laugh, cry, and feel less alone.”

    Winnie Holzman, actress

  • “Cindy’s essays are dizzyingly good…Marriage is laid bare, negotiations, passion, uncertain leveraging, children, dogs, and even boob jobs are all covered with affection and brutal honesty.”

    Julia Sweeney, actress
