Seven top books to help you get through your divorce

At B&N Reads Jen Harper tagged seven "books about divorce and struggling through difficult times—fiction, memoir, and some self-help," including:
High Fidelity, by Nick Hornby

Most breakup books focus on a woman left by/leaving a man, but Nick Hornby gives readers a fresh perspective in his novel-turned-film High Fidelity. Sarcastic and self-deprecating record store owner Rob Fleming has just been dumped by his girlfriend Laura, leading him to track down former girlfriends for a thorough examination of his five most memorable breakups. In this funny read, Rob discovers that what he seeks isn’t in his past—it’s what awaits him in the present.
