Here are recipes you won't find in just any cookbook: # Beans 'n' Weenies of Sexual Tension # Midlife Stress-Stuffed Cabbage # Control-Freak Cookies # Soufflé of Fallen Expectations # A Fairly Satisfactory Family Stew Though she grills societal norms with gleeful relish, Nava Atlas never loses sight of marriage's simple, loving rewards. The result is a feast of retro art, sly wit, and cultural commentary. No woman will be able to read this without thinking of five friends she must share it with!
