The marriage of Ted and Elinor Mackey, a yuppie podiatrist-lawyer couple in their earlys living in Northern California, is pushed to the brink when Elinor learns that Ted is having an affair with his trainer, Gina Ellison.

Elinor's reaction—pity—surprises her. Winston Good Grief adroitly makes it clear that Ted's affair is a symptom: infertility problems have caused years of emotional turmoil. And Gina's no bimbo: she has a loving but difficult relationship with Ted, complicated further by her young son, Toby, and his immediate attachment to Ted as a stable father figure.

When Elinor confronts Ted and Gina, Ted quickly ends the affair; neither is sure if infidelity or infertility should end their marriage. During their separation, Elinor takes a sabbatical from her law firm and casually dates Noah Orch, a hunky but dull arborist. Ted haphazardly resumes his relationship with Gina. As he realizes that his connection to her is more than an escape from a bad marriage, all concerned have decisions to make.

Winston has a real feel for the push and pull of a marriage in crisis, and delivers it in a brisk, funny, no-nonsense style that still comes off as respectful of the material. During the Covid crisis, Publishers Weekly is providing free digital access to our magazine, archive, and website.

HAPPINESS SOLD SEPARATELY

Winston Good Grief, skillfully comes into her own with this brave second novel. A deceptively breezy, thoughtful look at the emotional complexities of a childless suburban California marriage. Forty-year-old Elinor has been trying to have a baby, enduring exhausting hormone injections and a miscarriage; Ted has stood by her stoically, even tenderly, though their sex life is shot. Immersed in her work as a top-notch international employee-relations lawyer in Silicon Valley, Elinor is addicted to writing lists and sorting the laundry, leaving little room for romance or even dinner with her husband.
