West Hartford author Marilyn Simon Rothstein pens her third novel

Marilyn Simon Rothstein, author of Husbands and Other Sharp Objects and Lift and Separate, is back at it with Crazy to Leave You. Rothstein – a soon-to-be-published novel that takes readers on the journey of Lauren Leo, a forever dieting 41-year-old who is finally about to get married … until she’s dumped at the altar via text message – to her younger sister. 

What happens next forces Lauren on a road to healing and self-acceptance, but only if she can deal with her mother’s advice to freeze her eggs and stay slim, or the older sister, a flamboyant actress, hanging out on her couch.

Rothstein is winner of the Star Award presented by the Women’s Fiction Writers Association for Outstanding Debut.  

A native of New York City, she earned a degree in journalism from New York University, began her writing career at Seventeen magazine, married a man she met in an elevator, and owned an advertising agency for more than 25 years. She received an MA in liberal studies from Wesleyan University and an MA in Judaic studies from the University of Connecticut, and is a frequent speaker at book festivals and community events.
