Happiness Sold Seperately
Elinor and Ted Mackey are desperate to get pregnant. But infertility treatments have sapped their passion, rendering ”their marriage an experiment as fragile as embryos in a lab.” Soon, Elinor isolates herself in the warm haven of the laundry room while Ted seeks solace in the arms of his personal trainer, Gina, a single mom who always falls for the wrong guy. Happiness Sold Separately is a sensitive, often funny rumination on what marriage means when a couple drifts apart. Although Lolly Winston (Good Grief) can veer into the predictable, she skillfully plumbs the absurd range of emotions that flow from heartbreak.
