Product description


"Ingenious setup and voyeuristic pleasures...Rieger excavates the humor and humanity from a most bitter uncoupling."
--Emily Giffin, New York Times Book Review

"Fresh and lively... Smart and wonderfully entertaining... The power and canniness of this bittersweet work of epistolary fiction pulls you along... [T]his portrait of a divorce makes for serious, yet charming, entertainment... A dramatic intertwining of the law and human feelings."
--Alan Cheuse, NPR

"The Divorce Papers has more snap and freshness than a just-picked stalk of celery... The Divorce Papers is built around an undeniably clever conceit. But it's the humor and charm with which Rieger have imbued her novel that make her debut such a memorable read." --Yvonne Zipp, Christian Science Monitor

"In her clever modern twist on the epistolary form, Rieger excavates the humor and humanity from a most bitter uncoupling."
--Editor's Choice, New York Times Book Review

"Brims with brio and wit... A-" --Entertainment Weekly

"This comedy of manners... unfolds through e-mails, legal briefs, handwritten notes, and interoffice memos... the texts offer a provocative glimpse of how intimately our documents reveal us." --New Yorker

"Rieger writes with such facility and humor in so many voices... [A]n excellent yarn about the nature of love, insecurity and commitment."
--Minneapolis Star Tribune

"A witty first novel... The engaging tale...provid[es] all the voyeuristic pleasure of snooping through someone else's inbox." (Three out of four stars) --People

"A fantastic book...excellent." --Jezebel

"Whip-smart... The characters are hilarious and brilliant." --Lucky

"A modern epistolary novel of love, lawyers and email, The Divorce Papers is sharp, clever, funny and unexpectedly tender."
--Cathleen Schine, author of The Three Weissmanns of Westport

"Smart, sophisticated, and incredibly fun, The Divorce Papers brilliantly combines the pleasures of snooping with the delights of great storytelling. I raced through these charming pages and enjoyed every one."
--Karen Thompson Walker, author of The Age of Miracles

"Exceedingly entertaining."

"The Divorce Papers is terrific fun. I relished every last letter, memo, email, and legal brief in this sneakily clever, insidery peek into the world of privileged families and the lawyers who serve them."
--Kevin Kwan, author of Crazy Rich Asians

"A sharp take on the dissolution of a high-profile marriage...hilarious."

"Clever and funny... Lovers of the epistolary style will find much to appreciate. Rieger's tone, textured structure, and lively voice make this debut a winner."
--Publishers Weekly (starred)

"Rieger brilliantly blends the serious and the comic... The verdict: if you like your fiction smart and witty, The Divorce Papers is a winner."
--Shelf Awareness (starred)

"A brutally comic chronicle of high-end divorce... Extremely clever."
--Kirkus (starred)

"Susan Rieger brings her real-life experience as a lawyer to the table in this debut romantic comedy that's written, refreshingly, in the epistolary style."

"A fun, riveting and rollicking read that will make you wonder what first-time author Susan Rieger has up her sleeve next." --Bookreporter

"Witty and engaging... The Divorce Papers is a sharp read and an impressive debut. [Rieger's] prose--peppered with literary, historical and philosophical references--is whip smart." --BookPage

"Where Rieger excels is with her characters. Sophie and her crowd are witty, insightful, and interesting people... [A] refreshing and absorbing read."

"[C]risp and irreverent and highly entertaining... Diehl is a character you will like immediately and want to get to know better. She, her friends, family, and co-workers are deliciously interesting." --Federal Lawyer --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Book Description

"Witty and wonderful, sparkling and sophisticated, this debut romantic comedy brilliantly tells the story of one very messy, very high-profile divorce, and the endearingly cynical young lawyer dragooned into handling it. /B>" --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
