Advance praise for The Rules Do Not Apply
“I read The Rules Do Not Apply in one long, rapt sitting. Unflinching and intimate, wrenching and revelatory, Ariel Levy’s powerful memoir about love, loss, and finding one’s way shimmers with truth and heart on every page.”—Cheryl Strayed
“Every deep feeling a human is capable of will be shaken loose by this profound book. Ariel Levy has taken grief and made art out of it.”—David Sedaris
“Ariel Levy is a writer of uncompromising honesty, remarkable clarity, and surprising humor gathered from the wreckage of tragedy. Her account of life doing its darnedest to topple her, and her refusal to be knocked down, will leave you shaken and inspired. I am the better for having read this book.”—Lena Dunham
“A great memoir is not a trip through someone else’s life but a series of long looks into your own. Ariel Levy’s book—grieving, hopeful, painful, funny—is that.”—Amy Bloom
“It’s become a truism that feminists are living out our mothers’ unlived lives. But Ariel Levy seems to be living out the unlived lives of an entire generation of women, simultaneously. Free to do whatever she chooses, she chooses everything. While reinventing work, marriage, family, pregnancy, sex, and divorce for herself from the ground up, Levy experiences devastating loss. And she recounts it all here with searing intimacy and an unsentimental yet openhearted rigor.”—Alison Bechdel
“The Rules Do Not Apply is heartbreaking, brilliant, and disarming, the kind of book that may change you. Ariel Levy writes with a beauty that is ferociously honest and with the fervor of an explorer. No one else has written so insightfully about the current legacy of feminism’s ‘lavish gift’ of freedom. Levy has a voice unlike any other. This is a devastating and inspired book.”—René Steinke
Ariel Levy joined The New Yorker as a staff writer in 2008, and received the National Magazine Award for Essays and Criticism in 2014 for her piece “Thanksgiving in Mongolia.” She is the author of the book Female Chauvinist Pigs and was a contributing editor at New York for twelve years.

There was a single paragraph in the book on menstruation, and I read it and I thought: oh my goodness, I've been thinking about menstruation wrong my entire life, and I'm going to teach my daughter differently. The book is full of little gems like that -- off-handed sentences that you grasp onto for their really unexpected insights. I applaud Ariel Levy for churning such a wonderful book out of heartache. What a writer. I'll be reading anything she writes next!
I commend Levy for not holding back. I am in awe of her resilience. I imagine that this book is one way that she could cope with the gravity of some of the things that she went through and to find a way out of the darkness.
There were many lines in the book that made me cringe, not in a judgmental way, that made me wince along with her, and that made me laugh ridiculously hard. One when Levy is talking to a friend about the pros and cons of having kids. Her friend is clearly on the side of ‘it’s a bad thing’ while Levy is trying to convince herself that it is a good thing. Levy says something to the effect of how she thinks it would be cool to ‘make something of your own.’ To which the friend replies: “It’s not a gingerbread man. It changes your entire life.” I had to go back to the passage a few times to re-read it. And laugh aloud.
Levy uses humor to lift us up while taking us to the what surely is among the lowest depths of human misery. She takes us so close to her edge and finds a way to bring herself back and the reader right alongside her. This book is not for the faint of heart, but it can show you that getting back on the horse, perhaps not on every pony in the stable, allows you to move on to greener pastures.
