Descrizione prodotto


“Ariel Levy’s 2013 essay ‘Thanksgiving in Mongolia’ is one of the best pieces of nonfiction I have ever read. If I taught a class on the essay, I would make every damn student memorize it. Levy, a staff writer at The New Yorker, has expanded on this essay into a full memoir out in March, The Rules Do Not Apply. I read it in one big messy gulp, because it is beautiful and heartbreaking and unruly and real. You should preorder it immediately so you can fall into her complicated, funny, and finely wrought world as soon as humanly possible.”—

“A thoroughly modern memoir, the elements of The Rules Do Not Apply seem plucked not from the script of Girls, which has also been exploring reproductive issues of late, but Transparent—even Portlandia.The New York Times

“In reflecting on her own life, Levy’s tone is deeply honest, and at the same time manages to not be defensive or apologetic about her decisions; she’s not judgmental, but remains highly inquisitive. It’s a delicate balance, one rarely pulled off. The through line is her struggle to see things as accurately as possible, to translate her gift for interview and narrative into something personally productive. . . . I loved Levy’s book, and have followed her work for years, which made interviewing her a slight struggle. I had to navigate around what personally resonated with me and what would mean a great deal to other. . . . If you take anything away from our conversation, I hope it’s that you should read The Rules Do Not Apply.”Jezebel

“Frank and unflinchingly sincere . . . A gut-wrenching, emotionally charged work of soul-baring writing in the spirit of Joan Didion, Helen Macdonald, and Elizabeth Gilbert, The Rules Do Not Apply is a must-read for women.”—Bustle

“Levy has the rare gift of seeing herself with fierce, unforgiving clarity. And she deploys prose to match, raw and agile. She plumbs the commotion deep within and takes the measure of her have-it-all generation.”The Atlantic

“Cheryl Strayed meets a Nora Ephron movie. You’ll laugh, ugly cry, and finish it before the weekend’s over.”theSkimm

“[The Rules Do Not Apply] is a short, sharp American memoir in the Mary Karr tradition of life-chronicling. Which is to say that Levy, like Karr, is a natural writer who is also as unsparing and bleakly hilarious as it’s possible to be about oneself. . . . I devoured her story in one sitting. It felt, well, greedy. But ‘greedy’ is how the author characterises herself, so it seemed fine, hopeful even, to read her work in the same way, perhaps absorbing as I went a tiny bit of Levy’s remarkable resilience and appetite for life.”Financial Times

“It’s an act of courage to hunt for meaning within grief, particularly if the search upends your life and shakes out the contents for all the world to sift through. Ariel Levy embarks on the hunt beautifully in her new memoir. . . . The Rules Do Not Apply is a search for meaning, not reason. It doesn’t seek an explanation (outside of the medical one) for the death of Levy’s son, any more than it seeks to explain away the love, fear, frustration and other experiences and emotions that take place within her lifetime. Her grief becomes a new part of her—something to understand and get used to. . . . She’s brave and generous to share her story, which manages to be beautiful, even as it’s stark and wrenching.”Chicago Tribune

“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.

4.0 su 5 stelle Modern morality tale well-told 24 aprile 2017
Di Alli M. - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
A well-told series of stories by a solid writer who has lived a very interesting life. I especially liked the bits where the author reveals behind-the-scenes moments from stories she covered as a journalist. The book did have more explicit and unusual sexual content than I anticipated (not an issue for me, but feel should be noted for those who might be put off).

So loved this book. Her honesty about her own faults hopes were very relatable. Enjoyed the style of writing as well kept me interested. I like how she doesn't have this profound truth or lesson but still has hope and continues to march forward in her life and move on. Highly recommend!

3.0 su 5 stelle Not what I expected 23 aprile 2017
Di groupworker - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Obviously the author is an excellent journalist, however I was very disappointed in this book. It's a sad story with lots of layers of hard mistakes that she realizes in retrospect. I read lots of memoirs and there is a line between sharing one's deepest thoughts and being self-absorbed. At times, I felt so sad for Ariel and other times I didn't think I could read anymore. I had more questions than answers by halfway through and had trouble getting through the last 20%.
5.0 su 5 stelle Beautiful and heartbreaking 28 giugno 2017
Di A. J. Hall - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Beautiful and heartbreaking. I had a moment about 1/3 of the way through when I was annoyed with the writer because it felt like she'd been deliberately vague in the early parts of the book about a key detail that makes the loss of her child more heartbreaking. But it's worth pushing through. Also, there is A LOT of adultery which I find hard to stomach, but it's such a wonderfully written book that I have to forgive that.
