“With or Without You is a moving novel about twists of fate, the shifting terrain of love, and coming into your own. With tenderness and incisive insight, Leavitt spotlights a woman's unexpected journey towards her art.” —Madeline Miller, author of Circe New York Times bestselling author Caroline Leavitt writes novels that expertly explore the struggles and conflicts that people face in their search for happiness. For the characters in With or Without You, it seems at first that such happiness can come only at someone else’s expense. Stella is a nurse who has long suppressed her own needs and desires to nurture the dreams of her partner, Simon, the bass player for a rock band that has started to lose its edge. But when Stella gets unexpectedly ill and falls into a coma just as Simon is preparing to fly with his band to Los Angeles for a gig that could revive his career, Simon must learn the meaning of sacrifice, while Stella’s best friend, Libby, a doctor who treats Stella, must also make a difficult choice as the coma wears on. When Stella at last awakes from her two-month sleep, she emerges into a striking new reality where Simon and Libby have formed an intense bond, and where she discovers that she has acquired a startling artistic talent of her own: the ability to draw portraits of people in which she captures their innermost feelings and desires. Stella’s whole identity, but also her role in her relationships, has been scrambled, and she has the chance to form a new life, one she hadn’t even realized she wanted. A story of love, loyalty, loss, and resilience, With or Without You is a page-turner that asks the question, What do we owe the other people in our lives, and when does the cost become too great?

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A haunting, unforgettable mother-daughter story for a new generation—the debut of a blazing new lyrical voice NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST NONFICTION BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY Domenica Ruta grew up in a working-class, unforgiving town north of Boston, in a trash-filled house on a dead-end road surrounded by a river and a salt marsh. Her mother, Kathi, a notorious local figure, was a drug addict and sometimes dealer whose life swung between welfare and riches, and whose highbrow taste was at odds with her hardscrabble life. And yet she managed, despite the chaos she created, to instill in her daughter a love of stories. Kathi frequently kept Domenica home from school to watch such classics as the Godfather movies and everything by Martin Scorsese and Woody Allen, telling her, “This is more important. I promise. You’ll thank me later.” And despite the fact that there was not a book to be found in her household, Domenica developed a love of reading, which helped her believe that she could transcend this life of undying grudges, self-inflicted misfortune, and the crooked moral code that Kathi and her cohorts lived by. With or Without You is the story of Domenica Ruta’s unconventional coming of age—a darkly hilarious chronicle of a misfit ’90s youth and the necessary and painful act of breaking away, and of overcoming her own addictions and demons in the process. In a brilliant stylistic feat, Ruta has written a powerful, inspiring, compulsively readable, and finally redemptive story about loving and leaving. Praise for With or Without You “A luminous, layered accomplishment.”—The New York Times Book Review “A singular new coming-of-age memoir traces one girl’s twisting path up from mean streets (and parents) to the reflective life of a writer. . . . The burgeoning canon of literary memoir . . . begets another winner in Domenica Ruta’s searing With or Without You. . . . [A] gloriously gutsy memory-work.”—Elle “Stunning . . . comes across as a bleaker, funnier, R-rated version of The Glass Castle and marks the arrival of a blazing new voice in literature.”—Entertainment Weekly “Valiant and heartbreaking.”—Bust “Powerful . . . Ruta found an unconventional voice, a scary good mixture of erudition and hardened street smarts. Her writing is also, as they say in Danvers, wicked funny—though in her case wicked is more an adjective than an intensifier. . . . [With or Without You] hums with jangled energy and bristles with sharp edges. . . . Ruta writes with unflinching honesty.”—Slate “Bracingly funny and poignant.”—The Boston Globe “Exceedingly powerful.”—Booklist

This novel about a violently obsessed fan is “part journal, part suicide note and part psychological suspense story” (Publishers Weekly, starred review). Set in the late 1980s, and shifting between the points of view of an eighteen-year-old girl who is in prison for murdering a soap actress and the mother of the victim, this novel takes a dark look at celebrity and tabloid culture, neglectful parenting, and the damage that can arise from a desperate need for attention. From a Lambda Literary Award–winning author, With or Without You is “a fearless book that captures perfectly the torment of modern-day adolescence, as well as the utter loneliness of obsession” (Nina Revoyr, author of Southland).

‘Oh my goodness!… I have tears streaming down my cheeks… I have been completely pulled in and unable to put this book down… I'm hugely shocked that this book has brought out such emotion in me… Definitely deserving of five stars.’ Little Miss Book Lover 87, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Wendy’s life can be neatly divided into two: before and after. Before her husband’s car accident, it was just the two of them. They never took the train at rush hour, and they avoided their noisy neighbour upstairs. Naveem devoted his spare time to vintage train models, and Wendy to re-reading the well-thumbed pages of her favourite books. It didn’t matter what others thought about their small, quiet life together – they were happy. After the coma, Wendy barely recognises herself. When she’s not holding the love of her life’s hand, accompanied by the beep of the life-support machine, who is she? The nurse tells her to talk to Naveem – that he can still hear her – but she doesn’t have a single thing to say. Suddenly Wendy can’t bear the silence. She needs something, anything, to talk to Naveem about. Suddenly she’s losing herself at fairgrounds packed with crowds and candyfloss, she’s at the airport, waiting for the whoosh of the planes as they take off, making friends with the neighbour she has spent over a decade avoiding. Knowing that every breath her husband takes might be his last, Wendy has no choice but to try to carry on without him. Should she feel guilty about living while his life is on pause? And when – if – he wakes up, will he still love the woman she has become? This poignant, moving and uplifting tale is for anyone who has taken life for granted, neglected to say ‘I love you’ to their loved ones, or forgotten to find happiness in the little things. Perfect for fans of Josie Silver, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine and Jojo Moyes. Readers absolutely love With or Without You: ‘I am a little bit in love with this man and his incredible ability to make me cry my eyes out and then laugh so much I choke on my tea, in the space of a few pages!... A poignant, heartbreaking and heart-warming page turner.’ The Ladies Who Read ‘It’s heartwarming, emotional and a book I have thought about long after I finished it. I really enjoyed this and really recommend it!’ Goodreads Reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘This beautiful novel has stolen my heart. It’s original, poignant, funny and written with an exquisite sensitivity that cuts to the quick… Pure, belly-laugh farce – and yes, I did laugh out loud – but it is also deeply moving. I don’t know how he does it, but Davies gets the balance just right… ! And I loved the beautifully delivered messages about life, love, family and friends: the only things that really matter… I’m just going to come right out and say it: Mike Gayle, watch out! There’s a new kid on the block.’ Hook Me a Book, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘I loved this book so much… Thoughtful, funny… Sad, original and charming… This book comes highly recommended!’ Goodreads Reviewer ‘Wonderful… Drew me in, I laughed, I cried, a totally moving read.’ Goodreads Reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘I got through this book super quick… I really loved the unexpected twists and turns… Gripping and enticing.’ Goodreads Reviewer ‘I absolutely adore Drew Davies… His stories are original, poignant and heartwarming and this one is no different… I can't wait to read more by this author.’ NetGalley Reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘A perfect read for troubled times!’ Goodreads Reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘I was hooked and couldn't put it down!!’ Goodreads Reviewer ‘A warm, funny story… I definitely recommend reading… I’m already waiting for Drew’s next one.’ Goodreads Reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Heart-wrenching… Definitely a rollercoaster… This is a book which is completely unique to anything I've read before… I am definitely a converted fan to this author… I cannot wait to read more!’ Goodreads Reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘You will laugh and you may cry… I read it in an evening!’ NetGalley Reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘This is a book which should be read for its brilliant character portrayal, its sensitive handling of mental health issues and most importantly the story of falling in love again.’ Goodreads Reviewer
