The fake publishing world of Younger has blessed the world with the gift of an all-too-real novel. Specifically, Marriage Vacation, the novel Jennifer Westfeldt’s character Pauline publishes about her ex, Peter Hermann’s Charles, which will be published by Simon & Schuster on June 5, the same day Younger returns to TV. As those who watch the show might know, the novel “tells the story of a woman who leaves her marriage to go on a journey of self-discovery,” which ends up being a thinly veiled portrait of Charles and Pauline’s own relationship. More importantly, Marriage Vacation also includes one steamy page the characters can’t stop talking about on the show:

Charles … my goodness.
