"In Unfriending My Ex, Kim Stolz gives us a clear-eyed,
exceptionally intelligent look at a phenomenon at once mystifying
and unavoidable. The thrall in which social media holds us feels so
enchanting, we may be losing control of the most valuable parts of
our lives to it. The author, while respectful of both progress and
of her generation, seeks to restore that control. Here is the work
of a grown-up young woman, hip enough to live successfully in the
world as it is, yet thoughtful enough to identify its follies and
delusions. If our times may be defined by a smart phone, we should
be grateful that Unfriending My Ex is a hell of a lot
smarter."--Roger Rosenblatt, author of Rules for Aging: A Wry and
Witty Guide to Life
"I remain hopeful that despite current trends, self-awareness and genuine human connection are achievable among the 'me' generation. Kim Stolz's Unfriending My Ex serves as an entertaining and much needed reminder that we can live without our phones (temporarily) and that being able to laugh at yourself and learn from your mistakes is crucial if you plan to thrive in this digitally connected, fast-paced society."--Yaniv "Nev" Schulman, host of MTV's "Catfish"
