Today’s hottest Gen X writers share their personal reflections on growing up as children of divorce

An anthology of intimate personal accounts by hip young journalists and writers in their 20s and 30s, Split will be a source of insight, comfort, and healing for all those who were children of divorce. High-profile Gen X writers who have contributed to this volume include Paula Gilovich, Jill Priluck, Ayana Byrd, Matt Briggs, and Jen Robinson. Like a support group between the covers of a book, this collection of 15 stories articulates some of the most difficult emotional aspects of growing up in a broken home, while providing hope for the future.

“Three Way” – Excerpt:

” Sure, I’ll never be able to hand down my parents’ wedding rings to my children (Dad threw his in Lake Michigan and Mom pawned hers for a can of tuna, a box of Kraft mac-n-cheese and 2 packages of hotdogs), but what are materialistic family heirlooms when you’ve got love and their baggage to pass on?”
