The Rules Do Not Apply Zusammenfassung

The Rules Do Not Apply Ariel Levy

'Every deep feeling a human is capable of will be shaken loose by this short, but profound book' David Sedaris


'I wanted what we all want: everything. We want a mate who feels like family and a lover who is exotic, surprising. We want to be youthful adventurers and middle-aged mothers. We want intimacy and autonomy, safety and stimulation, reassurance and novelty, coziness and thrills. But we can't have it all.'

Ariel Levy picks you up and hurls you through the story of how she lived believing that conventional rules no longer applied - that marriage doesn't have to mean monogamy, that aging doesn't have to mean infertility, that she could be 'the kind of woman who is free to do whatever she chooses'. But all of her assumptions about what she can control are undone after a string of overwhelming losses.

'I thought I had harnessed the power of my own strength and greed and love in a life that could contain it. But it has exploded.'

Levy's own story of resilience becomes an unforgettable portrait of the shifting forces in our culture, of what has changed - and what never can.

Levy is a fearless, original journalist, now on the New Yorker, and she uses these same qualities to scrutinise her own life . . . Levy's prose is dynamic, molten with verbs and with images of light, movement and change . . . breathtakingly good . . . -- Nicci Gerrard * Observer *

A memoir that will change the way you think about monogamy and motherhood . . . we defy you not to read it in a single sitting * Elle *
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. But this is no mindless primer on having or not having it all. 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, author of Fun Home
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
This is more than simply a tale of a life undone . . . Levy's articulation of grief is also beautifully, frighteningly real * i *

A talented journalist - a staff writer at the New Yorker - she knows how to tell a story and keep it brief . . . gripping * Tablet *
A searing and poignantly honest memoir . . . Her story of resilience becomes an unforgettable portrait of the shifting forces in our culture * Sunday Post *

Think heightened senses and heady in-the-moment intensity. She's crisscrossed the globe in search of these
unique experiences as a staff writer for The New Yorker since 2008, and now turns her interrogative eye on herself. What results is
profound, and lasting

* Esquire *

A gut punch of a book as she explores the dilemmas of professional women who work hard then find they want children -- Jessie Burton, author of The Miniaturist
A dazzling insight into the mind of one of the New Yorker's most prolific writers, Ariel Levy's memoir will seem relatable to all those who have at one time or another felt a startling sense of dissociation from their life * Independent *
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. Her ersatz brand of zen wisdom is one we all need in our lives. I am the better for having read this book -- Lena Dunham
A great memoir is not just a trip through someone else's life, but a series of long looks into your own life. Ariel Levy's book - grieving, hopeful, painful, funny - is that -- Amy Bloom
