The Husbands & Wives Club
For more than a year, journalist Laurie Abraham sat in with five troubled couples as they underwent the searing process of group marriage therapy. Published as the New York Times Magazine's cover story, the resulting article, "Can This Marriage Be Saved?" generated intense reader response and received the Award for Excellence in Journalism from the American Psychoanalytic Association. Though the article allowed Abraham to focus on only one couple, her new book, which grew out of the article and the reaction it inspired, tells the moving, fascinating story of all five couples.
