ďWhat a wonderful writer―smart, wise, funny.Ē ―Anne Lamott
Six responsible adults. Three cute kids. One small dog. Itís just a normal weekend. What could possibly go wrong?
In Truly Madly Guilty, Liane Moriarty turns her unique, razor-sharp eye towards three seemingly happy families.
Sam and Clementine have a wonderful, albeit, busy life: they have two little girls, Sam has just started a new dream job, and Clementine, a cellist, is busy preparing for the audition of a lifetime. If thereís anything they can count on, itís each other.
Clementine and Erika are each otherís oldest friends. A single look between them can convey an entire conversation. But theirs is a complicated relationship, so when Erika mentions a last minute invitation to a barbecue with her neighbors, Tiffany and Vid, Clementine and Sam donít hesitate. Having Tiffany and Vidís larger than life personalities there will be a welcome respite.
Two months later, it wonít stop raining, and Clementine and Sam canít stop asking themselves the question: What if we hadnít gone?
In Truly Madly Guilty, Liane Moriarty takes on the foundations of our lives: marriage, sex, parenthood, and friendship. She shows how guilt can expose the fault lines in the most seemingly strong relationships, how what we donít say can be more powerful than what we do, and how sometimes it is the most innocent of moments that can do the greatest harm.
