I Wrote This Book Because I Love You - by Tim Kreider

“Tim Kreider’s voice is never anything less than honest, smart, and hilarious; in I Wrote This Book Because I Love You he is even more mordant and empathetic than ever before. What a sad and beautiful book.”
– Lauren Groff, author of Fates and Furies and Arcadia

“Tim Kreider’s wonderfully frank, consistently funny essays reminded me at a time of spectacular doubt that there might still be a few men in America who are both weird and wise, equally friendly to cats and ex-girlfriends, and refreshingly willing to admit to flaws that come entirely free of vindictiveness and cruelty. In an age of widespread buffoonery, it’s a pleasure and a relief to have Kreider restore a little faith.”
– Joshua Ferris, author of Then We Came to The End and The Dinner Party

“Not only smart, but admission-against-interest honest—a winning combination, and rare.”
– Lionel Shriver, author of We Need to Talk About Kevin and The Post-Birthday World

“Tim Kreider is one of my favorite living writers, no exaggeration…His wisdom is counterintuitive and therefore all the wiser; his humor is dark in ways that let light in where it’s needed most. This isn’t a book about one man’s relationship to women as much as it’s a chart of the collision course of human need in all its wrenching, perverse, gorgeous, hilarious forms. It’s his best stuff yet.”
– Meghan Daum, author of The Unspeakable: And Other Subjects of Discussion
