Still Life with Husband

(2007)
A novel by

 

"Any woman who's ever found herself looking at her life and wondering how on earth she wound up there will relate to the characters in this funny, honest novel."
Jodi Picoult


Meet Emily Ross, thirty years old, a freelance writer, and personal advocate for cake at breakfast time. With ringlets of shoulder-length hair prone to frizz and pretty brown eyes, Emily has been described in the following ways: “dramatic-looking,” “striking,” “interesting,” and once, “Venezuelan.” (She is not.)

Meet Emily's husband, Kevin, a sweet technical writer with a passion for small appliances. Kevin once cried during Little Women, is secretly afraid of raisins because they look like mouse droppings, and is slowly driving Emily completely insane with his daily pleas for procreation.

Enter David, a sexy young reporter for the local alternative newspaper. With his longish floppy hair and rough unshaven cheeks, David smells like air and wind, and Emily kind of wants to lick him.

In this generous, heartfelt, and often hilarious novel of marriage and friendship, Lauren Fox explores the baffling human heart and the dangers of getting what you wish for.
