THE SUNDAY TIMES AND NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

'This is the novel of the summer . . . There is no one that this book isn't for. I can't believe it's a first novel. Pure brilliance' INDIA KNIGHT, THE SUNDAY TIMES

'Could be one of the books of my entire lifetime. I've never felt so seen' GRACE DENT, GUARDIAN

'Sharp and wicked, insightful and funny, and then suddenly so touching' DAVID NICHOLLS

'This book is a work of utter perfection' ELIZABETH GILBERT

Finally free from his nightmare marriage, Toby Fleishman is ready for a life of online dating and weekend-only parental duties. But as he optimistically looks to a future that is wildly different from the one he imagined, his life turns upside-down as his ex-wife, Rachel, suddenly disappears.

While Toby tries to find out what happened - juggling work, kids and his new, app-assisted sexual popularity - his tidy narrative of a spurned husband is his sole consolation. But if he ever wants to really understand where Rachel went and what really happened to his marriage, he is going to have to consider that he might not have seen it all that clearly in the first place . . .

A BLISTERING SATIRICAL NOVEL ABOUT MARRIAGE, DIVORCE AND MODERN RELATIONSHIPS, BY ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING NEW VOICES IN AMERICAN FICTION

'So sharp' GUARDIAN

'The most astonishingly brilliant Trojan horse of a novel' DOLLY ALDERTON

'Wonderful. Utterly blistering . . . A wildly entertaining, moving story' MARIAN KEYES

'Brimming with wisdom and utterly of this moment . . . Taffy Brodesser-Akner's debut is that rare and delicious treat: a page turner with heft' MARIA SEMPLE

'It is a Great Novel . . . It has depth, wit, nuance and life. Heartbreaking and funny' NIGELLA LAWSON

Genre: Literary Fiction

Praise for this book

"Just the sort of thing that Philip Roth or John Updike might have produced in their prime (except, of course, that the author understands women)" - Elizabeth Gilbert

"This is a remarkable debut from one of the most distinctive writers around." - Tom Perrotta

"From its opening pages, Fleishman Is in Trouble is shrewdly observed, brimming with wisdom, and utterly of this moment. Not until its explosive final pages are you fully aware of its cunning ferocity. Taffy Brodesser-Akner’s debut is that rare and delicious treat: a page-turner with heft." - Maria Semple

"Blisteringly funny, feverishly smart, heartbreaking, and true, Fleishman Is in Trouble is an essential read for anyone who’s wondered how to navigate loving (and hating) the people we choose." - Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney
