Listen to the Marriage by John Jay Osborn

"If ever there were a book to read in just one or two sittings, this is it.  Steve and Gretchen are at a breaking point in their marriage, and, their story takes place entirely within their marriage counselor Sandy's office, and is told from Sandy's point of view.  Steve and Gretchen are complex and deeply flawed people, and it's fascinating to see them - and their marriage - through Sandy's not -always-objective lens.  This is a thoughtful, memorable, and ultimately very satisfying read."  - Recommended by Erika

Gretchen and Steve have been married for a long time. Living in San Francisco, recently separated, with two children and demanding jobs, they’ve started going to a marriage counselor. Unfolding over the course of ten months and taking place entirely in the marriage counselor’s office, John Jay Osborn’s Listen to the Marriage is the story of a fractured couple in a moment of crisis, and of the person who tries to get them to see each other again. A searing look at the obstacles we put in our own way, as well as the forces that drive us apart (and those that bring us together), Listen to the Marriage is a poignant exploration of marriage
