Cindy Chupack has spent much of her adult life writing about dating and relationships for several hit TV series and as a sex columnist for O, The Oprah Magazine. At the age of thirty-nine, she finally found The One-- and a wealth of new material. Marriage, Cindy discovered, was more of an adventure than she ever imagined, and in this collection of essays she deftly examines the comedy and cringe-worthy aspects of matrimony. Soulful yet self-deprecating, The Longest Date recounts her first marriage (he was gay) and the meeting of Husband No. 2, Ian.

Professional reviews

"ÒSex and the CityÓ writer and producer Cindy Chupack delivers her memoir quickly with a matter-of-fact tone that makes the performance sound slightly mechanical. Her background as a creative force with the iconic singles-oriented TV series makes her writing jump with incisive observations and snappy languageÑher perspective is that of someone firmly entrenched in the short-term dating scene who awakens to the aggravations and joys of a committed relationship (and eventually parenthood). Her performance doesnÕt keep her humor and urban sensibilities from coming through, but the book would have been better served if delivered by someone whose speech is more natural and entertaining. Her husband, an attorney, reads his part of the book with a low-key authenticity that is perfect for his segmentsÑand his place in the author's life. T.W. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
