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,"--Amazon.com.
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.
