Emily Giffin’s Heart of the Matter (on sale tomorrow!) is our cover story this month, and if you haven’t already, you should check out both Abby’s interview with Giffin and her dishy blog post on the movie version of Something Borrowed. Here’s an excerpt from the interview:
“I write about characters who are unsympathetic in some ways—or if they’re not unsympathetic, they’re at least making unsympathetic choices. And I think that’s very true to life. If you sample the people in your life, even ones you respect and love, you can go through pretty much all of them and think of a time when they’ve made a choice that you wouldn’t have approved of, or you would have strongly discouraged. But that’s what makes us human, the fact that we can make mistakes and we can hurt the people that we love, but those sorts of offenses don’t make us unlovable as a person.”
And that’s the issue at hand in Heart of the Matter: Can you make mistakes, hurt the people you love and come back out on the other side?
