About The Book

A funny and intimate portrait of a relationshipgleaned from the author and his fianceé’s couple’s therapy sessions.

After roughly three-and-a-half years of dating his girlfriend Hilly, New York Observer nightlife and society reporter George Gurley decided that it was time to get married. Well, engaged. No rush. One day at a time. George had witnessed New York husbands —frail, meek, ashamed, and henpecked, pushing double wide strollers as their battle-ax wives babbled on about “dinner with friends”—and it wasn’t for him.

Enter Dr. Selman: psychiatrist, obliging listener, and unwitting participant in George’s own journalistic project—a no-holds-barred portrait of intimacy taken from transcripts of the couple’s therapy sessions. George can be compared to a Carrie Bradshaw 2.0; that is, if Carrie were a hard drinking, ill-reputed man-about-town writing frankly about sex, love, marriage, and his own psychological baggage.

Hilarious, thought-provoking, and compelling,  George & Hilly  reveals the uncensored, unselfconscious psyche of a man on the brink of matrimony.
