    This is one of those memoirs that most likely served as a cathartic experience for its writer, and is of such a personal nature that, while one can thus understand the writing of it, one really can t understand the need to publish it Barely five pages into her narrative the author recalls an act of physical intimacy with her husband so personal that I think I actually recoiled from the pa...

    WARNING LOTS OF SPOILERS.I absolutely enjoyed reading this book because the author is quite adept at telling a story, and has a gift for detail She definitely transports the reader to the particular time and place, and I thought the subject matter was absolutely compelling That being said, I found Mrs Ryder Brady s reaction to her husband dislosing to her that he had slept with another man to be disingenous, perplexing and do...

    This book was mildly interesting for its description of a time gone by, when good girls from Northeast Protestant families went bad by dating outside their denominations, dropped out of Barnard to become someone s secretary, took acting classes and did one year of summer stock, got emotionally steamrolled by their awful, borderline personality disorder mothers, and then, their husbands This story is probably entertaining for the seersucker suit set, many of whom must know the Bradys by reputa This book was mildly interesting for its description of a t...

    This is another in those bitter modern memoirs that are circulating now, but better written than most The gist of it is that Sally Ryder Brady married and had 5 children with SPOILER ALERT a man, who became a prominent editor of The Atlantic Monthly, who she realizes after his death was either bisexual or gay but unable to accept his homosexuality Still, I kept getting an uneasy feeing throughout the bookshe seemed just too good to be true verbally and emotionally abused by her mother an This is another in those bitter modern memoirs that are circulating now, but better written than most The gist of it is that Sally Ryder Brady married and had 5 children with SPOILER ALERT a man, who became a prominent editor of The Atlantic Monthly, who she realizes after his death was either bisexual or gay but unable to accept his homosexuality Still, I kept getting an uneasy feeing throughout the bookshe seemed just too good to be true verbally and emotionally abused by her mother and later her husband, she just takes it all on the chin and keeps it together for the kids She keeps talking about how much she loved him and she quotes friends reassuring her that he loved herbut then why would she write this expose about a fact of his nature he desperat...

    Very well written and certainly held my interest but there were times in the middle when I took a real dislike to the author If you are afraid for your children not physically but emotionally is it really a good idea to stay married It would be interesting to have their take on things I also found it hard to believe that she was surprised, after her husband s death, to find out that he was either gay or bisexual after all, he admitted during their marriage to having sex with another m Very well written and certainly held my interest but there were times in the middle when I took a real dislike to the author If you ...

    I got this book as a Goodreads First Read It was fascinating Like watching a train wreck fascinating In the beginning, I wasn t sure exactly what it was that drew Sally to Upton other than the fact that the dancing was magnificent She admits there were red flags during their courtship By the end, I got the sense that the other things she loved abo...

    I received this book as A First Reads giveaway I enjoyed the book, though I think the author sold herself short I was left wondering why she remained in her marriage for so long when she really only presented a cursory and superficial description of her husband s good qualities He was presented in a very negative light I was left feeling not that they had a deep and complex marriage but rather that she was a weak and co dependent woman who chose to ignore major warning signs in her attempt I received this book as A First Reads giveaway I enjoyed the book, though I think the author sold herself short I was left wondering why she remained in her marriage for so long when she really only presented a cursory and superficial description of her husband s good qua...
