Overview

Sue Margolis’s “wickedly funny”* novels have broken new ground in the fiction of love and marriage. Now she tells the story of a woman trying to iron out the problems in her life.…



Eleven years ago, Sophie and Greg couldn’t get enough of each other. A pair of full-time jobs and two kids later, they’re in therapy asking themselves where all the sexy times went. Sophie thinks she knows: They’re buried under Greg’s mess. And even though her slob of a husband tries to make up for his shortcomings by cooking the occasional meal, Sophie is left to clean umpteen dirty dishes.



The last straw is when Greg uses some inheritance money to buy a World War II Sherman tank, which starts World War III in their marriage.



Sophie doesn’t so much surrender as retreat—right out of the relationship. While Greg almost immediately shacks up with someone else, Sophie finds herself facing even more uncertainty due to a job reorganization. And even though she begins to lose her heart to a high school crush, Sophie starts to realize that a shiny new relationship doesn’t always offer the softest place to fall…and she may find self-acceptance and love in the place she least expects it.

    I¿m a big fan of Sue Margolis and have every book she has ever w

    I’m a big fan of Sue Margolis and have every book she has ever written since Neurotica in 1998. So, I was really happy to see that she has written a new book after a two year absence. It was worth the wait.
    The book starts with Greg and Sophie going to visit a couple’s counselor to try to repair their fracturing marriage. Little things like Greg buying a Sherman tank, his constant inability to do anything around the house (including plunging the toilet he stops up on a regular basis), and a lack of action in the bedroom have brought Sophie to the end of her rope. Greg, on the other hand, sees her as a woman neurotic about cleanliness with a martyr complex and who doesn’t appreciate how hard he works to support the family. Needless to say, the sessions do not go well and they decide to separate.
    What follows is the telling of how a family functions after a split. This is what I like to call a slice of life book. There are no major highs or lows, no real villain or hero, just regular people trying to make sense of the life that they have ended up living. In addition to her marriage imploding, Sophie has to deal with major changes at work, financial troubles, and general life suckiness! Greg seemingly is able to move on with little disruption in his life.
    I really liked this book. Ms. Margolis manages to keep a humorous bend to a lot of the angst in the book but not to the point of making it a farce. Both Sophie and Greg move on and have personal growth that allows them to get happiness back in their lives. When I got to the end, I was pleased with how it all worked out. I hope that Ms. Margolis has her next book out sooner than two years from now!
