365 Nights: A Memoir of Intimacy

The Mullers had a solid marriage and two wondeful children, but over the years sex had fallen low on their to-do list. The lack of intimacy wasn't casuing them to drift apart, exactly, but their connection didn't seem as great as it could be. Charla decided she couldn't go on pretending the relationship they once had wasn't important. The couple would embark on a year of scheduled sex, falling over toy trucks and piles of laundry in an effort to make time for each other. There were obstacles along the way - when disasters at work intruded on their home life and when there were questions about sex itself and faking it. Sex is always a good thing though - isn't it? The couple found themselves asking some deep and fundamental questions as the months passed. Would sex every day strengthen a marriage, or reveal the cracks? Does getting it regularly bring a couple together or will it actually drive them apart? Would physical love - whether good, mediocre or ugly - make up for things that aren't so good? They had a whole year to find out... 1.0 out of 5 based on 1 reviews

Reviews

The Observer

Kathy Lette

This is a sex book with no sex. Intercourse is euphemistically dismissed as "lovin'" or a "roll in the hay" and the rest is just tedious minutiae detailing the time Charla's kids go to bed, her weight issues, inlaws, Bible class and love of housework... Don't expect to be stimulated by her literary style either... It's like reading a meat lover's guide written by a vegetarian. After a decade of marriage, if you're having daily sex with your husband, the reader needs the libidinous details.
