Marrying George Clooney: Confessions From A Midlife Crisis - Amy Ferris (Seal Press, Sept., 2009)
Welcome to the wacky, brilliant and absolutely wonderful world of Marrying George Clooney: Confessions from a Midlife Crisis.
Amy Ferris offers up her heart and soul -- sharing all her down and dirty, raw-to-the-bone, no holds-barred 3:00 AM musings. Along with fantasizing about marrying George Clooney, she spends time negotiating her Ambien intake, deals with her ever-expanding body, worries endlessly about her husband, contemplates her Jewish mother’s rapidly progressing dementia (along with her newfound love of Jesus Christ), and googles old boyfriends ... all in the middle of the night while her patient husband Ken sleeps soundly.
Ferris courageously and humorously takes readers along for the ride as she negotiates and struggles through her own midlife crisis - ultimately discovering that menopause is an opportunity to fall madly in love with yourself. This wonderful, and profound book will not only change how you feel about menopause, it will forever change how you feel about the world around you.
"Marrying George Clooney is a wonderful read - disarmingly candid and laugh out-loud funny." John Berendt, author, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
"Amy Ferris is the menopausal David Sedaris." Sean Strub, Editor, Founder of Poz Magazine
"The profundity sneaks up on you in Amy Ferris's irresistible memoir. Ultimately, Marrying George Clooney is so surprisingly radical, because it's so frickin' real. You can't help but see yourself in Amy's wanderings and wonderings, and even forgive yourself a little in the process." Courtney E. Martin, author, Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters
Please, make sure to send to all your friends, all your co-workers, everyone on your e-mail lists! and to all family members (that you're still on speaking terms with) -- awakening them to this fabulous, brilliant and heartbreakingly beautiful laugh-out-loud book.
