Publisher's Summary

When Laura Munson’s essay appeared in the “Modern Love” column of The New York Times, it created a firestorm. Readers sent it to their friends, therapists gave it to their patients, pastors read it to their congregations. People everywhere were struck by Munson’s wisdom. But how was she able to implement this strategy? How was she able to commit herself to an “End of Suffering” in such a critical time?

Poignant, wise, and often exceedingly funny, This Is Not The Story You Think It Is recounts Munson’s journey. Written as she experiences her crisis, moment by moment, sometimes breath by breath, This Is Not The Story You Think It Is is raw and searingly honest in the very best sense. Munson takes listeners by the hand as they embark, together, on a journey – one in which the outcome is not known. Filled with wisdom, truth, and heart – and a great tomato sauce recipe – it is a candid, powerful, and unforgettable memoir.

    "skip it"

    This audiobook was a waste of a credit. Listening to this book is like listening to one of your girlfriends ramble on and on and on and then on again about her husband, what didn't work, how she wished it had worked, all the things that did work over and over and then over again, you just wish at some point she would talk about something else........anything else!!!!

    "Living through a man's mid life crisis"

    Though I found the "I'm an author, why aren't I more successful?" parts annoying I was genuinely interested in the story of a wife living through her husband's mid-life crisis and attempts of divorce and separation educational. It does explore that "for worse" part of the marriage vows and I would recommend this book for those about to marry so they can ask themselves, if your spouse announced that they no longer loved you, what would you do.
