Cathi Hanauer, Gone

“Trust Cathi Hanauer to write such a touching, funny, smart book about the way families and marriage both gird and choke a life. The husband and wife here, a sensitive and spirited pair, each yearn for freedom as they still fully embrace the bonds that tether them to one another. It’s that earthly paradox that Hanauer understands so deeply and executes so beautifully in her latest, greatest novel!”
Helen Schulman, author of This Beautiful Life

“Cathi Hanauer is a great chronicler of modern love and life, who has created, in the pages of Gone, the beautiful, intricate story of a beautiful, intricate marriage. This novel will resonate with anyone who has ever been married--which is to say, it will resonate with anyone who has ever struggled to reconcile love against ambivalence, loyalty against the lure of solitude, and domestic fidelity against the call of the open road.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love
