For once, these men are the objects; I am the subject. Me, me, me. Rosemary Mac Cabe was always a serial monogamist – never happier than when she was in a relationship or, at the very least, on the way to being in one. But in her desperate search for ‘the one’ – from first love to first lust, through a series of disappointments and the searing sting of heartbreak – she learned that finding love might mean losing herself along the way.

This Is Not About You is a life story in a series of love stories. About Henry, with the big nose and the lovely mum, with whom sex was like having a verruca frozen off in the doctor’s surgery: ‘uncomfortable, but I had entered into this willingly’. About Dan, with the goatee. About Luke, who gave her a split condom. About Francis, who was married… But mostly, it’s about Rosemary, figuring out just how much she was willing to sacrifice for her happy ending.

  1. Ailis

    Rosemarys voice both spoken and written is one that I could listen to all day. Her stories are immensely relatable and I find her own self discovery to be extremely helpful in my own self discovery.
    The book was such an easy read! Broken up into chapters based on each relationship, it was easy to put down to make another coffee and even easier to pick up to read again.

  2. Deirdre Smith

    I devoured Rosemary’s book in a little over 24 hours. I found her writing so easy to read, so relatable and insightful.
    I found myself running through situationships and relationships from my teenage / 20s and viewing them through a lense where I was kinder to my younger self. Highly recommend
