THE NEW BOOK THAT IS UNEXPECTEDLY CHANGING MARRIAGES
Through stories most people haven't experienced, like waiting in line to use the bathroom at an invite-only sex party in New York City, Renard takes her readers to places we all know too well. Feeling disconnected, unappreciated, and like we are doing it all have become hallmarks of modern marriage and parenthood.
Swing is helping individuals flip the switch from depleted to filled up in partnership, parenting, and career while inspiring couples to raise the bar for intimacy and communication inside and outside of the bedroom.
Hilarious, heartbreaking, and hopeful, Renard takes "doing it all" to a level she never intended, and shares (and bares) it all so you can get your life back on track before you go off the deep end.
"Renard's narrative voice is lighthearted and witty ... a thoughtful work that delves into the intricacies of marriage and longing." Kirkus
"Swing is the sexiest, funniest, most deeply felt memoir you will read this year."
Andromeda Romano-Lax, author of Annie of the Wolves and Behave
"In Swing, Ashleigh Renard has created an entirely new genre: the hot self-help book. With its wit and grace and wisdom-and some steamy interludes-this book belongs on your shelf next to Glennon Doyle and Brene Brown and Luvvie Ajayi."
Dr. Deborah Williams, Professor, NYU
"Charming, hilarious, and deeply wise, Ashleigh Renard's remarkable debut is that rare thing: A memoir that both entertains and instructs."
Joanna Rakoff, author of A Fortunate Age, My Salinger Year, and The Fifth Passenger (forthcoming)
Ashleigh Renard, author of Swing and Keeping it Hot: The Workbook, has grown a dedicated online community who tune in daily to get her fresh, no-fuss advice on everything from keeping monogamy hot, to renegotiating a marriage, to getting kids to clean the house (because nothing makes her prouder than child labor).
