Acclaim for Kristina Grish and We Need to Talk. But First, Do You Like My Shoes?
"Kristina's prose is smart, witty, sassy, and caustic as hell. I'm not surprised. She and I dated in college; I feared her, but Mom loved her. After she ended it, we went on a shopping spree as if to clothe my open wounds. Can I just say that Chapter 9 looks awfully familiar?"
-Jason, ex-boyfriend, lasted two months
"An irreverent, hilarious, and bitingly accurate look at the necessary evil that is extracting oneself from a failed relationship. Even if you're happily coupled, you'll laugh (then shudder) in utter recognition of the funny and precise dating particulars as described by Grish."
-Erin Ergenbright, author of The Ex-Boyfriend Cookbook
"Kristina broke my heart, though her book is simply brilliant. If I knew then what I know now, I never would have been so nice to her dry cleaner. Who knew he was an accessory to the bloody crime?"
-Johnny, ex-boyfriend, lasted 168 hours
"This book answers the age-old philosophical question of what to wear when you dump the bastard, and offers advice on the right accessories. It succeeds where Plato, Aristotle, and Socrates failed."
-Susi Rajah, author of How to Spot a Bastard by His Star Sign
"Just because Kristina killed me wearing cashmere doesn't mean I have to comment on her fancy little project. I liked it, okay? Is that what you want to hear? I thought it was an ambitious, audacious delight by one of the freshest voices of our time. There, I said it. Happy now?"
-Brian, ex-boyfriend, lasted almost five months
