ON SALE: March 2, 2021 | Hardcover | ISBN 9781640094475

A timely and entertaining look at our fragile economic moment and the downward mobility of the middle class from the New York Times bestselling author of I See You Made an Effort.

Offering hilarious and heartfelt insights into the (many) indignities and (unexpected) opportunities of a downwardly mobile mid-life, Annabelle Gurwitch explores the joys and vocabulary that come with parenting a gender non-binary child, embracing the Jewish tradition of welcoming strangers even if that means inviting a homeless couple and their rabbit to move in, and the strange bedfellows of midlife “divorce.” Told in her signature acerbic voice, You’re Leaving When? is for anyone who’s ever turned to home-sharing to defray the cost of a rapidly contracting middle class, weighed the benefits of coupling up versus the cost of dating (lube isn’t cheap!), rebelled against the stereotypical depiction of midlife women in popular culture, or simply wondered for just how long, exactly, does one have to enjoy a holiday party.
