I wanted what we all want: EVERYTHING. We want a mate who feels like family and a lover who is exotic, surprising. We want to be youthful adventurers and middle-aged mothers. We want intimacy and autonomy, safety and stimulation, reassurance and novelty, coziness and thrills. BUT WE CAN’T HAVE IT ALL.

As a young woman, Ariel Levy decided that to be a writer would be like being a professional explorer; she would be free to do and travel anywhere she chose. When, as a 38-year-old working journalist, she left for a reporting trip to Mongolia she thought she married, pregnant, financially secure and successful on her own terms. A month later, none of that was true.

In this “deeply human and deeply moving” (The New York Times Book Review) memoir, Levy chronicles the adventure and heartbreak of being, in her own words, “a woman who is free to do whatever she chooses.” Her story of resilience becomes an unforgettable portrait of the shifting forces in our culture, of what has changed—and of what is eternal.

The discussion will be moderated by Antje Deistler –a journalist and literary critic. She publishes stories on German TV and radio stations about international literature and crime literature. Additionally, she hosts events and readings with writers in English and German.
