I LOVE YOU, AND I'M LEAVING YOU ANYWAY is television writer Tracy McMillan's provocative, insightful, and hilarious memoir of how she tried to find love, security and self-esteem from men, because she didn't get it from her relationship with her dad. Of course, her relationship with her father is more complicated than most -- he is a fur-coat wearing, El-Dorado-driving convicted pimp, drug dealer and felon, incarcerated for all but 8 years of her life. Her story is further complicated by the fact that she's been married 3 times, has had live-in relationships with 4 men and countless affairs before the ripe old age of 40. But this is not a "woe is me" story of what went wrong:
I LOVE YOU AND I'M LEAVING YOU ANYWAY is a story of what's gone right. It's the story of how having a father obsessed with women made her a woman obsessed with men, and how raising a son taught her everything she needed to know about men, women and love. Heartwarming, comedic and unflinchingly real, I LOVE YOU, AND I'M LEAVING YOU ANYWAY helps us all see our own complicated relationships through Tracy's wonderfully flawed humanity.
