What Happens When the Dream Family Wakes Up?
40-plus marrieds Annie and Mickey Wilder have been best friends since childhood. Recently transplanted from New York to California, thanks to Mickey’s stardom in a hit TV series, the Wilders and their two grown children are Hollywood’s dream family, and the envy of all their friends.
Now it’s Thanksgiving Day, and Annie’s birthday. Her family is gathering for what she’s sure will degenerate into a celebration worthy of a Eugene O’Neil drama. She’s not far from wrong. Soon, Annie and Mickey are questioning everything they ever wanted—or thought they wanted…including the one thing they assumed would last forever: their love for each other.
Filled with Gloria Nagy’s trademark wit and wicked gift for satire, MARRIAGE is a wonderfully fresh, incisive portrait of a couple in crisis—and a funny, smart and moving look at midlife love.
