The Anatomy of a Relationship
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
A funny and intimate portrait of a relationshipgleaned from the author and his fianceé’s couple’s therapy sessions.
After roughly three-and-a-half years of dating his girlfriend Hilly, New York Observer nightlife and society reporter George Gurley decided that it was time to get married. Well, engaged. No rush. One day at a time. George had witnessed New York husbands —frail, meek, ashamed, and henpecked, pushing double wide strollers as their battle-ax wives babbled on about “dinner with friends”—and it wasn’t for him.
Enter Dr. Selman: psychiatrist, obliging listener, and unwitting participant in George’s own journalistic project—a no-holds-barred portrait of intimacy taken from transcripts of the couple’s therapy sessions. George can be compared to a Carrie Bradshaw 2.0; that is, if Carrie were a hard drinking, ill-reputed man-about-town writing frankly about sex, love, marriage, and his own psychological baggage.
Hilarious, thought-provoking, and compelling, George & Hilly reveals the uncensored, unselfconscious psyche of a man on the brink of matrimony.
George & Hilly is an absolute MUST READ for everyone: men, women. . .young, old. . .gay, straight. It's hysterical, heart warming and exciting - all at once! These two people have really opened themselves up in a way that will no doubt bring great comfort to countless couples who have dealt with the ups and downs that accompany any relationship. The best part here is that we can experience it all vicariously through their tales while laughing and guffawing all along the way!
