You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up

I just finished reading You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up by Annabelle Gurwitch and Jeff Kahn. It is a very funny exceedingly honest account of love and marriage and how challenging it can be to keep that love alive while being married. In some ways it reminded me of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, ie, uncomfortable/insightful personal disclosures about things that make you wince because it hits too close to home. They recount the travails of dealing with a child who has very serious health issues and the impact that this has had on their relationship. Many of us can relate all too well to the intrusiveness of life, work, laundry, bill paying, and 401(K) allocations and how they conspire against spontaneity; the only true weapon to vanquish routine. HBO take heed: give them their own talk show and thereby improve the marital health of all Americans.
