Coming Clean by Sue Margolis
September 23, 2013 - Amy Phelps
Sue Margolis tells the story of a relationship falling apart in "Coming Clean."
Sophie and Greg, married for 11 years, are feeling the sting of every day life with kids and two jobs. Now in therapy, they are trying to sort out the pieces of their relationship, that is until Sophie has decided enough is enough. Greg is sloppy and messy and the final straw comes when he gets an inheritance and uses the money to buy a World War II Sherman tank. Their marriage is done. Greg almost immediately moves in with another woman, Roz, a successful professor and writer. Her kids seem to be dealing pretty well with the split and the new woman in their dad's life. Sophie is still going dateless and finds her job now uncertain. A new chance at romance comes with a high school crush, Huck, who comes back into her life needing publicity for a work-related project. Is she misreading signs or is he interested? And why does Greg's new girlfriend keep trying to to be overly friendly or overly involved in how she and Greg are parenting the kids? Where is Sophie's life heading, with Huck or with Greg?
This is a sharp story about the ups and downs of relationships and that sometimes the grass isn't always greener on the other side.
"Coming Clean" is published by New American Library. It is $15 and 374 pages long.
