    A drunken gerbil could write a better andclosely reasoned memoir than this Hardly any of the sentences or paragraphs make sense It feels like the country fair has come to the town of my mind complete with sketchy rides, carnies, and sugar amped kids crying over lost balloons So loud and disorienting I want it to pack up and move on to the next town I want my mind to be an open grassy field again with crickets and dandelions Besides, my husband isn t there to ring the bell with the A drunken gerbil could write a better andclosely reasoned memoir than this Hardly any of the sentences or paragraphs make sense It feels like the country fair has come to the town of my mind complete with sketchy rides, carnies, and sugar amped kids crying over lost balloons So loud and disorienting I want it to pack up and move on to the next town I want my mind to be an open grassy field again with crickets and dandelions Besides, my husband isn t there to ring the bell with the mallet to win us all a stuffed animal which, in that one summer moment, is the most important thing in the world Unfortunately, most of the prose doesn t rise to this level of so awful it s hilarious it just reads like it s been badly translated from Russian My mother and grandmother knew the names of things fine things And they taught them to me with seriousness in their brows With seriousness in my brow, I m calling this book one of the worst I ve picked up in recent memory

    I liked this book I think I wanted to like it slightlythan I did after I heard about the premise on NPR Then, when I started the book the author kind of annoyed me Her trust fund baby background pushed all my prejudice buttons and set up a nice little tone of resentment that hung between the story and myself and threatened to undo all the possibility for mutuality and connection that is the very heart of enjoying a memoir.Yeah, and then I got over it Laura is a little bit spoiled She I liked this book I think I wanted to like it slightlythan I did after I heard about the premise on NPR Then, when I started the book the author kind of annoyed me Her trust fund baby background pushed all my prejudice buttons and set up a nice little tone of resentment that hung between the story and myself and threatened to undo all the possibility for mutuality and connection that is the very heart of enjoying a memoir.Yeah, and then I got over it Laura is a little bit spoiled She had a life that is a little bit too charmed But she knows it, and she feels a little guilty about it even privileged people, it turns out, can have brilliant experiences that can move others to compassion and inspiration Her marriage isn t my ideal dream, she isn t who I want to become, she isn t even who I am or have beenbut she s got something really grasp it between your fingers RIGHT and that rightness she discovered is the real inspiration I found her writing style sometimes annoying, sometimes pleasant and never breathtaking I thought her story was sometimes eye rolling and sometimes relate able and I thought over all that the resolution was only somewhat convincing Will they make it Is four months enough to be able to say that they had resolved this marital crisis I don t know But I do know that the position of compassion instead of accusation, holding to yourself and solving your own problems instead of jumping to destroy the other person in a conflict is good and healthy and righthowever very, very difficult and super un American it may be After I read Munson s book I checked out some of the philosophers who influenced her and some of the writings she says are her bedrock go to texts and frankly, I found them pretty much inaccessible to me I don t get most of philosophy but I do get Munson s story, the beautiful aroma her book gives off because she steeped herself in the great thinkers and as a wife I hope to carry her kind of respect and compassion both for myself and my husband into my own married life I hope it s catching

    Wow What a fun memoir I loved it Loved every word I found this book at our bookstore, and it does not really come out until April The book is the memoir by Laura Munson, who happens to live in Whitefish, Montana Can you believe that I think she is about 8 years older than all of my friends, but she moved to Montana the same year my family did.The book was also summarized in a New York Times column last August.In summary, her husband asked her for a divorce, and told her he did not love he Wow What a fun memoir I loved it Loved every word I found this book at our bookstore, and it does not really come out until April The book is the memoir by Laura Munson, who happens to live in Whitefish, Montana Can you believe that I think she is about 8 years older than all of my friends, but she moved to Montana the same year my family did.The book was also summarized in a New York Times column last August.In summary, her husband asked her for a divorce, and told her he did not love her any and she responded by telling him she just did not buy it HA The article gives away the ending of the story, but that does not mean you should not read the book I would say the book is kind of like sorry Elizabeth Gilbert I think you are wonderful a less whiny Eat, Pray, Love.I love how she talks to the reader I do that to.Her main point of the book, though, is not about her divorce, but about how she went about letting everything else go, and only seeking to find happiness insider herself She was the only one who could make herself happy.When I started working at POGO, Keith told me a story about working at the Gray Panthers A lot of elderly people would call the Gray Panthers everyday looking for help with problems Instead of just telling them they called the wrong place, Keith typed up a list of phone numbers for the commonly asked questions His boss heard him giving out this information and told him to just hang up on the people Keith told him, he couldn t You can pick up the phone, or you can put down the phone You are in control of the phone This phone story is a metaphor for a lot of things I think about in my life I am in control of the phone I think Laura feels the same way about happiness she is in control of her happiness.She also tells the reader how to grill the perfect burger don t turn it over until the juices in the burger are bubbling.There were lots of places in this book when I wanted to call Laura up and just hang out She could be in my friend group no problem.This is her first published book She has written 14 Can you even imagine So go out there and get this one

    Definitely worth a read, though with some caveats Laura Munson is remarkably likable unlike Elizabeth Gilbert to whom I m sure she ll be compared repeatedly It s easy to root for her and her advice is thoughtful, honest, and compassionate That being said, the book s writing is a little amateurish at times and can also meander in trying to fix her marriage, Munson strives for a level of anonymity and privacy for her husband and children that is admirable but also leaves much of her narrativ Definitely worth a read, though with some caveats Laura Munson is remarkably likable unlike Elizabeth Gilbert to whom I m sure she ll be compared repeatedly It s easy to root for her and her advice is thoughtful, honest, and compassionate That being said, the book s writing is a little amateurish at times and can also meander in trying to fix her marriage, Munson strives for a level of anonymity and privacy for her husband and children that is admirable but also leaves much of her narrative struggling to fill the gaps that this anonymity requires That gaps gets filled with a family recipe, citizen activism and other things that weren t as compelling as her marriage derived insights What the book lacks is tightening ellipses and italics weight the pages down at a certain point and some sections seemclearly edited than others Still, the book is warm and interesting and sure to spark conversation It just could have been even better I do admit to wondering if her wisdom isn t a little bit dangerous for women in relationships like hers women who are really good at being infinitely patient, infinitely compassionate for men who are ultimately selfish children The moment when she questions if she could ever love her husband again despite knowing how hard she s fighting for him when she has seen how little of her equal he is was one that she never answered and which lingered for me after reading it Sure, she has the ability to love deeply and truly but will he ever There are implications throughout the book that he has needed her helping hand before and most likely will again I just worry that her wisdom will be dangerous for people who will keep telling themselves they should love their partner despite their abundant weaknesses and through any kind of direct emotional abuse because it makes them somehow in control of their destinies So, it s a fine line I liked the book but I m wary of some of the things it espouses Take with a grain of salt

    When the going got tough Laura Munson decided not to play the victim Instead, she was determined NOT to suffer, even when her husband and the father of her two children told her he wasn t sure he still loved her Her response was something akin to keep calm, carry on, partly because she simply didn t buy it He was in the midst of financial losses and business woes and she was a convenient target for his angst Some may have accused Ms Munson of being in denial instead, it seems she kn When the going got tough Laura Munson decided not to play the victim Instead, she was determined NOT to suffer, even when her husband and the father of her two children told her he wasn t sure he still loved her Her response was something akin to keep calm, carry on, partly because she simply didn t buy it He was in the midst of financial losses and business woes and she was a convenient target for his angst Some may have accused Ms Munson of being in denial instead, it seems she knew her husband well enough, and loved him fiercely enough, to ask him this question What can we do to give you the distance you need without damaging the family Ms Munson s graceful resolve not to suffer, theoretically, can be applied to ANY situation, not just to a marital crisis She vowed not to become a ranting and raving shrew even on nights where her husband slept at the office without calling home Even when he went off fishing with buddies for days at a time Even when he sat sullen and speechless at the dinner table Even when he disappointed their kids on the Fourth of July.It s not that she wasn t in pain She was But she wasn t going to let that pain define her and she wasn t going to be a doormat Ms Munson had recently recovered from a lengthy grieving process following her father s death She didn t want to return to those depths Sure, she had sleepless nights, angry conversations in her head, and plenty of doubts Instead of indulging them, she took care of herself, enjoying time with her children, cooking and canning, leaning on female friends for strength, riding her horse, and taking solace in writing her life s calling Reading this book is like getting generous advice from a therapist or an older, wiser woman Ms Munson has an easy, conversational style She tackles serious issues head on, but she also knows when to lighten up Besides the so called self help aspect of this book, this memoir spins a compelling true tale of a life challenge met with aplomb It reads like a long, heartfelt letter from a friend

    Memoir of a time in the author s life when her husband said I m not sure if I love you and walked out the door I had a lot of hope when I started reading this, but I quickly started skimming, because she repeats herself, and she strikes me as rather smug I ll skim a fewchapters to see if it gets better, but I don t expect much I m still skimming, I ve skimmed myself to about 75% of the way done The author remains quite smug So disappointing.A big part of my problem here is the autho Memoir of a time in the author s life when her husband said I m not sure if I love you and walked out the door I had a lot of hope when I started reading this, but I quickly started skimming, because she repeats herself, and she strikes me as rather smug I ll skim a fewchapters to see if it gets better, but I don t expect much I m still skimming, I ve skimmed myself to about 75% of the way done The author remains quite smug So disappointing.A big part of my problem here is the author goes on and on and ON about how she wants to be a writer, she s always wanted to be a writer, and she has been writing novels her WHOLE LIFE I d guess she s about 40 when she writes this one, so that s a good twenty years of writing and she knows she s good, damned good, even the rejection letters she keeps getting tell her so, and she s really not a very good writer I intend to never read another book she s written if she is ever published again Ms Munson, if you re reading this, I m very sorry, I m sure you re a very nice person and a great mom, but maybe the essay is a better format for you The Modern Love column really caught my attention
