Writer Wendy Swallow

Shes a former staff writer for the Washington Post. Shes written a new memoir about divorce, Breaking Apart: Dreaming of Divorce (Hyperion). She writes about the slow unraveling of her 12 year marriage, and the impact on herself, her husband, and their two sons. She writes, "There are those who believe it is simple selfishness that leads people to divorce. For those of us who have lived it, its hard to see why anyone would rip out their veins for some immature or narcissistic desire to get what they want."
