Pretzel Logic
Lisa Rogak Shaw
Buy the Book
What would you do if your spouse woke up one day and told you he was gay?

Emily Spencer lived in Coventry, New Hampshire, with her husband Michael, where they published a weekly newspaper and were, by all accounts, happy.

However, after a few years, Michael began to change; he grew quieter and more sullen. The more Emily pressed for an answer, the more he resisted. Finally, one day, she learned her husband's secret: Michael was gay.

What follows in Pretzel Logic is at turns bittersweet and hysterically funny as Emily and Michael learn to deal with their own truths. Recent movies like "In and Out" and "The Object of my Affection" have only skimmed the surface. Pretzel Logic, written by a woman who's been there, is the first story to tell it like it is.
