Wendy Merrill was the tall scrawny late bloomer on the sidelines of the seventh grade dance who turned into the sweet-sixteen-never- been-kissed good girl yearning to be bad. Ph.D.s were the norm in her family, yet she aspired to be comfortable on any barstool in the world. In college, she took a class called "Dating and Marriage" -- and got an F. Wendy has spent a lifetime conducting undercover operations in the arena of dating and mating, earning her a rich body of data. As a recovering love addict, codependent, and alcoholic, Wendy explores the contradictions of being a woman, and writes about her imperfections with honesty, humor and style in her embarrassing honest best selling book, Falling into Manholes: The Memoir of a Bad/Good Girl (Putnam 2008). The Library Journal review raved "...Merrill reveals her constant struggles with life, love, and addiction in this absolutely hilarious memoir," and Anne Lamott remarks "Wendy M. is a wonderful new voice--smart, funny and wildly real."
