“Lucid and charming, Tenembaum’s narrative and her use of auto-fiction to dive into diverse aspects of realities, achieves her goal of transcending individuality.”—El País
“The End of Love takes on many of the most disconcerting, complex problems of our intimate, everyday lives with the perfect mix of modesty and ambition.” —Revista Otra Parte
Born and raised in an Orthodox Jewish community in the heart of Buenos Aires, Tamara Tenenbaum learned the sexual and emotional habits of the secular world like an anthropologist discovering an unknown civilisation.
The End of Love is a tool for the creative destruction of romantic love and the principles that sustain it so that from its ashes, a better love—one that makes men and women freer in their relationships—can rise.
Drawing from philosophy, feminist militancy, conversations with friends, and from an attempt to turn her own experience into a laboratory for personal and collective reflection, Tenembaum dives into the universe of affection, proposes the eroticization of consent, and celebrates the end of romantic love as we know it.
