Description

"A feast for the mind." PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY

"A contemporary voice with the ease of Natalia Ginzburg's or Irene Nemirovsky's." —GUADALUPE NETTEL, author of Still Born

"Nuanced, deeply rich, and a joy to read." —CHARLOTTE FOX-WEBER, author of What We Want  

In the twenty-first century, our romantic ambitions are intrepid... We want egalitarian and honest bonds, and we are eager to understand what that means. We also want to fall in love, to have sex, and to be loved; we want stability and adrenaline—the lifeboat and the open sea—, we want everything at the same time. But is it possible to have all of that? Or is this a recipe for frustration? Is this an honest yearning or a mere aspiration, a desire for completeness? Am I an idiot if I pursue it? Am I a cynic if I give up on it?

Born and raised in an Orthodox Jewish community in the heart of Buenos Aires, Tenenbaum learned about the sexual and emotional habits of the secular world like an anthropologist discovering an unknown civilisation.

Drawing from philosophy, feminist activism, conversations with friends, and from an attempt to turn her own experience into a laboratory for personal and collective reflection, Tenenbaum dives into the universe of affection, celebrates the end of romantic love as we know it, and proposes the eroticization of consent.

The End of Love is a tool for the creative destruction of romantic love and the principles that sustain it so that, from its ashes, a better love―one that makes men and women freer in their relationships―can rise.
