Listen to the Marriage
At times, Listen to the Marriage reminded me of In Treatment, the HBO series starring Gabriel Byrne, in which most of the action takes place within the therapist's office. But here we have an in depth analysis of only one couple, Gretchen and Steve, who as the book begins are already living separately. Sandy, their counselor, has issues of her own which are revealed to the reader, but also surprisingly at times to her clients. To someone not versed in therapy or who has never had this experience, it can be a daunting, mysterious process, one in which progress may or may not be made mostly through incremental steps. I have never read such a detailed account of struggle and pain, and found it heavy going at times, but then, isn't that an essential ingredient of therapy. The writing is beautiful, and the experience, rewarding.
