Inhaltsangabe: A wise and hilarious novel from the bestselling author of Funny Girl, High Fidelity, and About a Boy.
A brutally truthful, compassionate novel about the heart, mind, and soul of a woman who, confronted by her husband?s sudden and extreme spiritual conversion, is forced to learn ?how to be good??whatever that means, and for better or worse?
Katie Carr is a good person?sort of. For years her husband?s been selfish, sarcastic, and underemployed.
But now David?s changed. He?s become a good person, too?really good. He?s found a spiritual leader. He has become kind, soft-spoken, and earnest. Katie isn?t sure if this is deeply felt conversion, a brain tumor?or David?s most brilliantly vicious manipulation yet. Because she?s finding it more and more difficult to live with David?and with herself.
Katie Carr is a good person. She recycles. She's against racism. She's a good doctor, a good mom, a good wife...well, maybe not that last one, considering she's having an affair and has just requested a divorce via cell phone. But who could blame her? For years her husband's been selfish, sarcastic, and underemployed, writing the "Angriest Man in Holloway" column for their local paper.
But now David's changed. He's become a good person, too—really good. He's found a spiritual leader. He has become kind, soft-spoken, and earnest. He's even got a homeless kid set up in the spare room. Katie isn't sure if this is a deeply-felt conversion, a brain tumor—or David's most brilliantly vicious manipulation yet. Because she's finding it more and more difficult to live with David—and with herself.
