Fiction. Literature. Humor (Fiction.) HTML:The New York Times best-selling author of The Nix is back with a poignant and witty novel about marriage, the often baffling pursuit of health and happiness, and the stories that bind us together. From the gritty '90s Chicago art scene to a suburbia of detox diets and home-renovation hysteria, Wellness reimagines the love story with a healthy dose of insight, irony, and heart.
??A hilarious and moving exploration of a modern marriage that astounds in its breadth and intimacy.? ??Brit Bennett, author of The Vanishing Half

When Jack and Elizabeth meet as college students in the '90s, the two quickly join forces and hold on tight, each eager to claim a place in Chicago??s thriving underground art scene with an appreciative kindred spirit. Fast-forward twenty years to married life, and alongside the challenges of parenting, they encounter cults disguised as mindfulness support groups, polyamorous would-be suitors, Facebook wars, and something called Love Potion Number Nine.
For the first time, Jack and Elizabeth struggle to recognize each other, and the no-longer-youthful dreamers are forced to face their demons, from unfulfilled career ambitions to painful childhood memories of their own dysfunctional families. In the process, Jack and Elizabeth must undertake separate, personal excavations, or risk losing the best thing in their lives:

Peppered with great stuff - especially the opening - but never quite got me in a vice like The Nix did. ( )

I enjoyed it for the first 150 pages and then I started to really enjoy it. By drawing in so many threads, academia, rural life, East Coast elites, parenthood, motherhood specifically, placebo effects, psychology, marriage...it all worked really well and had a very emotional ending that was nearly suspiciously satisfying, but I decided to just enjoy it and not be a cynic.

While I found this novel a bit difficult to enter, ultimately it was incredibly rewarding. It unfolds the story of two individuals and their partnership, revealing the secrets they keep from each other and, often, themselves. I found this story of how we can begin to see ourselves clearly, and how that allows us to finally truly connect with others, moving and hopeful, "heartbreaking" blurbs on the back of the book notwithstanding. There are funny moments and sad moments, moments of insight and moments of confusion. This is a novel about humanness, the ways our pasts and the stories we tell ourselves about our pasts shape us, and the opportunity we have to "try out those [stories] that are most humane, most generous, most beautiful, most loving."

An excellent, heartbreaking, reality-baked modern love story from the childhood trauma that made them to the outside forces that tried to tear them apart and ultimately brought them back together. The scene at the kitchen table/in the grocery store with the two year old was just too real for me. ( )

Sweet novel, did not expect so much Kansas.

Predictable finish, probably overly long but kept me reading. ( )
