Husbandry: Sex, Love & Dirty Laundry--Inside the Minds of Married Men Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At last, one husband reveals the answers

to some of mankind's greatest mysteries.

Why do men hog the remote? Refuse to stop and ask for directions? Have such a hard time sharing their emotions? Why cant they drop their socks in the laundry basket instead of near it? What does a man mean when he says “uh-huh”? (No, it doesnt always mean hes not listening.)

In this wickedly observant collection of essays, Stephen Fried, widely praised as an investigative journalist, turns his attention to the subject of marriage—his own and others. The result is a daring, provocative, often hilarious read that throws incisive light on mysteries that have long plagued womankind: the inner workings of the male mind. Originally published as a series of popular columns in Ladies Home Journal—and now compiled in one volume at the request of his enthusiastic readers—Frieds pitch-perfect essays fearlessly tackle the realities of love, sex, and marriage with both wit and tenderness. Drawing from candid conversations with fellow husbands as well as with his own wife, Husbandry will surprise, disarm, entertain—and tell you more about the man in your life than you could ever learn by asking him.
