Kelly If you loved JULIE AND JULIA, don't assume that you're getting "more of the same" with CLEAVING. This was a book I'd heard rumors about before picking up. "Julie Powel was having an affair while she wrote 'Julie and Julia'" was one. This--and others--were true. The book made me uncomfortable, but not in a good way. It made me feel bad for Julie's husband. If you've seen the movie, you're familiar with the scene where they get in a fight and the last thing he says to her is "Don't go put this on your blog." I wonder what he makes of this story, where the troubles of their relationship are not just on the sidelines, but instead take center stage. Ouch.
