Formatted Contents Note:
If you have been replaced by a surprising choice, read about Nero and Poppaea -- If you are accomplished and independent and fierce, read about Eleanor of Aquitaine and Henry II -- If your family didn't like your ex and thought you could do better, read about Lucrezia Borgia and Giovanni Sforza -- If you have ever made the same mistake twice, read about Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard -- If you have started snickering at happy couples on the street, read about Anna Ivanovna -- If you believe in ghosts, read about Timothy Dexter -- If you have just sent your ex a very intense emotional e-mail, read about Caroline Lamb and Lord Byron -- If there were body image issues, read about John Ruskin and Effie Gray -- If it was just a sad affair, read about Oscar Wilde and Lord Alfred Douglas -- If you were dumped, read about Edith Wharton and Morton Fullerton -- If you are struggling to find anyone as good as your ex, read about Oskar Kokoschka and Alma Mahler -- If you deserve an apology, read about Norman Mailer and Adele Morales Mailer -- If you want to believe it will all work out for the best in the end, read about Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher and Elizabeth Taylor..
Summary, etc.:
"In It Ended Badly, New York Observer columnist Jennifer Wright guides you through thirteen of the worst breakups of notable figures in history" from Emperor Nero to Oskar Kokoschka and Norman Mailer. "-- Provided by publisher.
"A history of heartbreak-replete with beheadings, uprisings, creepy sex dolls, and celebrity gossip-and its disastrously bad consequences throughout time,"
From ancient Rome to medieval England to 1950s Hollywood, Wright guides you through the worst of the worst in historically bad breakups. She educates, entertains-- and really puts your own bad breakup conduct into perspective. For anyone who's ever loved and lost and maybe sent one too many ill-considered late-night emails to their ex, just remember-- no matter how badly you've behaved, no one is as bad as Henry VIII.
