By all accounts, Mark D'Arbanville has the "perfect life" - a successful writer, he is happily married with a teenage son. But when he falls in love with another woman, Mark's life unravels, exposing regret, estrangement, and heartache. Yet, as his marriage falls apart, Mark still can't let go. Nor can his lover, Anna, who won't leave her husband.
When Mark finally does make the break, the effect is catastrophic - his wife commits suicide. The circuit breaker comes when Mark finds his dead wife's journals, and in their pages discovers a man - himself - he can barely recognize. He is forced to take stock of who he is and how men and women live their lives.
In response to The Bride Stripped Bare, The Naked Husband takes a candid look at the way men think, act, and feel inside a relationship. Shocking, disturbing, but impossible to put down, it's a novel for every woman who ever found the reality of sex and marriage so different to the fairytale, and wondered why.

It's very rare when a man talks about his life in frank words, particularly when his actions have such an impact. I did not know before reading that the story is partly autobiographical so I was truly fascinated by the male perspective of a love affair and life as a man and father in general. Despite - or because of - its unsettling developments it is an absorbing book. I very much enjoyed listening to it. The narration is well done!
started out on a negative note and continued. Seemed to be read in black and white with no colors.
