    Review excerpt from Curled Up With a Good Book

    Man and woman meet. Fall in love. Get married. A few years into the marriage, husband reveals secret tearing the marriage apart: he's gay. The stuff of Hollywood, you say, similar to situations seen in recent hits like 'In and Out' and 'The Object of My Affection.' Far more common than you think in real life, according to the author (and publisher) of PRETZEL LOGIC. Lisa Rogak, herself a 'straight spouse' (a heterosexual married to a gay man), wrote this autobiographical novel at the urgings of her support network of straight spouses 'as a way to get our stories out to a world that is largely ignorant of the issues of trust we struggled with in our marriages, and carry out into everyday life.' Finding little information and support when her husband dropped his bombshell, Rogak made the dissemination of information concerning the straight-spouse dilemma her cause. Lisa Rogak is mostly a nonfiction author, and it shows in PRETZEL LOGIC. The narrative flow readers expect from fiction is occasionally interrupted by expository and descriptive blocks that fit in less than seamlessly. Take PRETZEL LOGIC for what it mostly is, though, a memoir of a different kind of coming-out, and it's hard not to be amused, appalled and bewildered by turns at the comic and tragic turns taken in one straight woman's life.
