Metz''s "Perfection" chronicles with lapidary precision one woman''s climb back to happiness after not just a spouse''s death, but also the shocking recognition that her life before that death was not what she had thought it was.--Julie Powell, author of "Julie & Julia"
From the Publisher:
A young widow profiles the seemingly idyllic life she shared with her husband and young daughter, her devastation over the pulmonary embolism that abruptly ended her husband's life, and her shocked discovery that he had been unfaithful to her throughout their marriage.
With a young daughter and a 16-year marriage to an adoring husband, Julie Metz thought she had the perfect life. But when her husband collapses and dies in their kitchen, Metz not only must cope with his death, but is forced to face the revelation that for their entire relationship her husband was unfaithful with her, carrying on a series of cruel affairs. With her entire concept of reality obliterated, Metz must, at the age of 44, reevaluate everything she has ever known about life, love, trust, and happiness. Her powerful memoir explores the secret undercurrents of a "normal" life, and shows how nothing is ever truly perfect.


"[Metz] discovers [her dead husband] had numerous affairs, including a longtime relationship with one of her friends. Readers will be mesmerized as [she] seeks out his consorts and confronts them--sometimes with curiosity and sometimes with venom." - Carol Memmott 06/12/2009
