Four couples gather for filet mignon and explosive conversation in Food for Marriage, Ken Carlton's gimlet-eyed look at contemporary coupledom. Lucy and Lionel seem to have it all--except for Lionel's creative block and Lucy's long-held secret; Nicole has chucked her family for a new and interesting squeeze; Dan is a boy-man still looking for his big acting break while his long-suffering wife, Nora, holds up the suburban fort; and unemployed Chuck drinks himself into oblivion while his wife, Paula, contemplates the idea of returning to work after fifteen years raising kids. Under the influence of wine, roasted potatoes, brussel sprouts drowning in butter, salt and garlic, the best and the worst of these folks come riotously to light. Well-drawn characters and sharp observations gave me the sense I was sitting at the table. A wonderful, funny, ultimately uplifting book about this crazy thing we call marriage.
