If your significant other left you and claimed you were boring, how would you react? In Autopsy of a Boring Wife, Québécois author Marie-Renée Lavoie gives us one option: prove them wrong. When 48-year old Diane’s husband leaves her for a younger and supposedly more interesting woman, she sets out to prove that she is, in fact, spontaneous and witty. Diane’s riotous and tender journey towards self-love is shared by the reader, and as the Toronto Star put it, “feels perfectly right.”

Recommended by Toronto Life, Loan Stars, 49th Shelf, CBC Ontario Morning, Refinery 29 and counting, this is one to pick up if you want a heart-warming and hilarious read to slide you forward into Spring.
