HORNBY NICK – Lo stato dell’unione. Scene da un matrimonio
Lo stato dell’unione. Scene da un matrimonio
A heartbreaking, funny, and honest look inside of a marriage falling apart and the lengths a couple would go to in order to fix it from the bestselling author of About a Boy and High Fidelity.
“Hornby is a writer who dares to be witty, intelligent, and emotionally generous all at once.” – The New York Times Book Review
Tom and Louise meet in a pub before their couple’s therapy appointment. Married for years, they thought they had a stable home life–until a recent incident pushed them to the brink.
Going to therapy seemed like the perfect solution. But over drinks before their appointment, they begin to wonder: what if marriage is like a computer? What if you take it apart to see what’s in there, but then you’re left with a million pieces?
Unfolding in the minutes before their weekly therapy sessions, the ten-chapter conversation that ensues is witty and moving, forcing them to look at their marriage–and, for the first time in a long time, at each other.
