Infidelity: A Love Story (Inglés) Tapa dura – Texto grande, nov 2002
Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
The powerful true story of three generations of marriage and infidelity. In this bluntly honest memoir, Ann Pearlman movingly recalls her experiences of the pain, wisdom and female strength that resulted from her father's and grandfather's adultery. Ann determined that her own marriage, when it happened, would be faithful and forever. In the 1960s, Ann fell in love with Ty, an African-American professional football player and artist. Over twenty-five years together, they obtained graduate degrees, forged dual careers and raised children. As a psychotherapist, Ann wrote a book on the joys of sexual monogamy and embarked on an author's tour, appearing on TV talk shows, including Oprah, as an expert on marriage. As the century drew to a close, Ann discovered her husband's affair with a married Japanese woman. Again, Ann was forced to revisit infidelity, an echo from previous generations.

Pearlman is a fool, as we have all been fools. She is honest with herself---about her rage and self-castigation--as not all of us have been honest. This is what lifts the book up and makes it so strong at the end. Anyone could tell her, "Leave the guy. Get rid of him, he treated you terribly." But anyone who's been through such an infidelity knows that it's not so simple. How long and hard we hang on, because the unfaithful one is in our hearts.
She writes about her husband, "I tell him, `Heal me, heal me. I hand myself to you. You say you want me. Then figure out a way to put this back together.'" But he can't, or won't, and Pearlman has to do it herself. That's how it works, and the reader can see how deep the author had to go to resurrect herself.
Slowly, she does. "Ty does not reach out to me. Before I fall asleep that night, I know the sense that I had that everything could slide back in place and be normal is gone. It will never be how it used to be. I have incorporated his infidelity."
To me it's a blunt and dangerous book, impossible to either ignore or forget.
