The book

Both an autobiography and a feminist manifesto about how we understand romantic love today, and how the contradictions of inherited traditions and technology affect the way we build relationships

Born and raised in an Orthodox Jewish community in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Tamara Tenenbaum learned the sexual and affective habits of the secular world like an anthropologist discovering the ways of life of an unknown civilization. 

Drawing from philosophy and feminist militancy, from conversations with friends and colleagues, and from an attempt to turn her own body and experience into a laboratory for personal and collective reflection, Tenenbaum explores the challenges that young people today face at the start of their adult lives.

Tenenbaum examines the multiple dimensions of affection, from the value of friendship to the culture of consent, passing through motherhood as a choice or an imperative, desired and abhorred singlehood, polyamory, open relationships, and the workings of dating apps. Timely and illuminating, The End of Love celebrates the creative destruction of romantic relationships as we know then, and advocates for the rise of a better, freer love.
