Description

A Refinery29 Best Book of the Year

The novel that inspired the acclaimed Rebecca Miller film Maggie's Plan, starring Julianne Moore, Ethan Hawke, and Greta Gerwig.

 Isabel, Anna, Beth, and Maggie are women who aren’t afraid to take it all. Whether spearheading a pregnancy lingerie company, conspiring to return a husband to his ex-wife, lusting after an old lover while in a satisfying marriage, or trying to balance motherhood and work—they are sexy, determined, and not looking for a simple happily ever after. Through punchy, hilarious, and insightful storytelling, The End of Men shatters the confines of society, and more importantly, those we impose upon ourselves.

“With humor, bravery, and panache, Karen Rinaldi puts her finger straight on the tender conundrum of the female experience, where work, love, and motherhood intersect.” — Rebecca Miller, director of Maggie’s Plan

"Karen Rinaldi's The End of Men is in every way marvelous. A sharply drawn story—or more accurately, stories—that gets everything right.  Warm hearted but painfully close to the bone. " —Anthony Bourdain

"In 1995, I wrote a short story, 'Baster,' inspired by some goings-on in my friend Karen Rinaldi's life.  In 2003, that story, significantly altered, became the Jennifer Aniston-movie ‘The Switch.’  In 2016, another film, 'Maggie's Plan,' directed by Rebecca Miller, appeared, this time based partly on Rinaldi's unfinished novel about said events.   And, now, Rinaldi has finished that novel, creating yet another version, her own version.  I knew it was a good idea the first time I heard it, but I had no inkling it would prove quite so fruitful.  Given the subject matter, however, how could it be otherwise?  Certainly, this is a story that keeps on giving." —Jeffrey Eugenides
