You know her. You’ve Seen Her. You May Even See Yourself In Her.
If you’re arriving to the midlife crisis party—the one that’s serving low self-esteem, desperation, unreliable behavior, forgetfulness, carelessness, and the loneliness of loss—the stories and anecdotes in this memoir will assure you that you are not alone. For Sara Arnell, It took a rogue lobster, a dying rock star, an eighteen pound tumor, a meditation guru, a famous medium and a former monk to help put her on a path toward light, hope and healing. If reading this book helps even one person, according to Sara, then telling this story is all worth it.
“Sara Arnell is the only writer I know who can make self-deprecation and wisdom look like the same thing. There Will Be Lobster is a darkly funny memoir with a big heart, and it's the exact comeback story we all need right now.” David Hollander, author of Anthropica and L.I.E.
"No matter where you are in life’s journey, there are stories and anecdotes in this book that will confirm what we know but don’t always practice - self-care and self-love are the two most powerful healers you have available.” Dr. Gabrielle Lyon
“This book is a deeply personal story that’s not afraid to show you the crazy moments that we all have, but often don’t admit to. Read this memoir if you want to learn how honesty, vulnerability and sheer perseverance can help you step into your light and illuminate a new path – one that is happy, healthy and full of hope.”
Andre Leon Talley, author of NY Times best seller, The Chiffon Trenches and former Vogue editor-at-large
"Sara Arnell’s memoir There Will Be Lobster is filled with wry self-deprecating humor but equally replete with genuine poignancy. In writing so transparently about the full catastrophe of her mid-life crisis, Sara takes us on a journey that arrives at hard earned resilience and lasting insight. This book is a rollicking account of the human condition written in an authentic original voice."
