    When Irene America discovers that her husband, Gil, has been reading her diary, she begins a secret Blue Notebook, stashed securely in a safe deposit box. There she records the truth about her life and her marriage, while turning her Red Diary—hidden where Gil will find it—into a manipulative farce.

    Overall

    Intriguing, provocative novel about the relationship between husband and wife, artist and muse, race and popular culture. The small details of domestic life were spot on and the descriptions of the "Artsy Crowd" reflected my experience of that world.

    Unfortunately,the wrap-up at the end was a huge disappointment. It felt tacked on and took away from the power of the book.

    Coleen Marlo did a fabulous job as Narrator. Her reading brought the daily world of this family to life without making it sound mundane. She also captured the powerful two main characters in her voice. No small feat as they are truly multi-layered, smart, and wily individuals.
