Publisher's Summary

Alex thought she had married the man of her dreams: successful, gorgeous, and delighted by her small-town charm. When he walks out six months later, proclaiming to have 'found himself' (with the help of a stunning yoga teacher), she 'finds herself' alone in an unfamiliar city, vengefully drinking through his prized wine collection, living on takeout, and refusing to answer the door. When this fails to cure her broken heart and bruised ego, she reluctantly allows her new friends to intervene. Slowly, Alex learns to define success on her own terms; she discovers the secret to love in all its forms, and the perfect flying crow pose, one breath at a time.


What the Critics Say

"I love this book.... Bishop writes with Tina Fey snark, Mary Karr toughness, and Zadie Smith soul. You owe it to yourself to get your digital mitts on this e-book. Love, loss, hot tears, cold pizza; resentment, redemption, and the sweet rescue of enduring friendships. Oh, yeah...and enough funny stuff about yoga to almost make us forget how damned good it is for body and soul." (Bruce Cummings, former writer and senior producer, NBC Nightly News)
