  • Short Description
The saucy and ever-appealing Diane, now turning fifty and with the wreckage of her marriage behind her, sets off on a new hilarious journey for romance.

The eagerly anticipated sequel to the critically beloved and bestselling Autopsy of a Boring Wife finds the saucy and ever-appealing Diane, now turning fifty and with the wreckage of her marriage behind her, setting off on a new hilarious journey for romance.

A Boring Wife Settles the Score marks the return of Diane, the raunchy and entertaining heroine of the prize-winning and bestselling Autopsy of a Boring Wife. Despite the end of her marriage, Diane still has plenty of love to give. Determined not to waste her days — that’s just not her style — she finds a job in a daycare and solace in cocktails with her best friend, Claudine, who convinces Diane her love life is not over. Diane wants romance and sees no reason why she shouldn’t have it, but she soon discovers, in her typically chaotic and hilarious manner, that for a woman approaching her fifties the task is not so simple as it is for a man.

•      The first novel in the series, Autopsy of a Boring Wife, was critically acclaimed, appearing
on the CBC’s Books of the Year list and being shortlisted for the Forest of Reading Evergreen Award.

•       Like the first novel, A Boring Wife Settles the Score was acclaimed in Quebec by outlets such as Le Devoir, L’Actualité, and Librairies de Québec. The English translation will no doubt find similar acclaim.

•       Arielle Aaronson’s translation of Autopsy of a Boring Wife was singled out
for praise in reviews; the Montreal Review of Books talked about the humour and plot helped by her “finetranslation.” We are thrilled to bring this pairing back together again to
build on their proven working relationship.

•      With her two English-language translations, Lavoie has found crossover success. Her first novel, the Montreal-set coming-of-age story Mister Roger and Me, was praised by the National Post and Montreal Review of Books, and Autopsy of a Boring Wife was beloved by both critics and general readers.





MARIE-RENÉE LAVOIE was born in 1974 in Limoilou, near Quebec City. She is the author of four novels, including Mister Roger and Me, which won ICI Radio-Canada’s “Battle of the Books” — the Quebec equivalent of “Canada Reads” — and the Archambault Prize; Autopsy of a Boring Wife, which was a finalist for the Forest of Reading Evergreen Award, a Hoopla Book Club selection, and a CBC Best Books of the Year, and is currently being developed for television; and A Boring Wife Settles the Score. She lives in Limoilou.

ARIELLE AARONSON left her native New Jersey in 2007 to pursue a diploma in Translation Studies at Concordia University in Montreal. She holds an M.A. in Second Language Education from McGill University and has spent the past few years teaching English in the Montreal public school system and creating educational material for second language learners. She previously translated Marie-Renée Lavoie’s Autopsy of a Boring Wife and A Boring Wife Settles the Score for Arachnide.
