Marrying George Clooney: Confessions from a Midlife Crisis
“While wide awake in the middle of the night (welcome to menopause!), Amy Ferris began chronicling every one of her funny, sad, hysterical, down and dirty, and raw to the bones stories. Along with fantasizing about marrying George Clooney, Ferris is faced with a plethora of other insomnia-induced thoughts and activities. From googling old boyfriends to researching obscure and fatal diseases on the web. She worries endlessly about her husband, relies heavily on Ambien, and tries to arrange care via the Internet for her mother (who has both severe dementia and a massive love-bubble crush on Jesus Christ)-all while refraining from lighting up just one more cigarette.
“This little book contains a lethal combination; it’s honest, brave and hilarious. There is no ground too sacred for Ferris to tread upon if it means shedding light to generously help another soul smart enough, lucky enough, daring enough to read her.”–Patricia Elam author of Breathing Room “Marrying George Clooney is a wonderful read – disarmingly candid and laugh-out-loud funny.”
–John Berendt, author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
“Marrying George Clooney is smart, funny, wise, poignant and true. I am sure it will speak to all women.”
–Suzanne Braun Levine author of 50 is the New Fiftyand Inventing the Rest of our Lives
“Amy Ferris has successfully combined a rip-roaringly funny page-turner, with an unvarnished account of the personal history that formed her. This gut-wrenching look at intimate relationships will resonate with readers because of the universality of its raw emotion, clarity of vision and self-revealing courage.”
