About this title
What's tormenting Julia Connery? After thirty-three years of marriage, her self-righteous husband mostly, and her gangster-obsessed father-in-law, both named Sebastian and both a bit peeved that she didn't name her son Sebastian. Even the Connery ancestors, their ashes inside urns within Julia's bedroom closet, whisper disappointments in her direction. It's no wonder Julia starts talking to a figment of her own imagination. Rather than provide comfort, this figment reminds Julia of her husband's unaccounted disappearances. When the figment lays down its challenge -- Find me a man and a woman who still desire each other after fifty years of marriage or I'll never go away! -- Julia struggles to do just that.From the Inside Flap:
So who's tormenting Julia Connery?
After thirty-three years of marriage, her husband, of course. A self-righteous, Scottish-obsessed, damsel-in-distress-saving husband; a magnet attracting a parade of women wanting to interview him for their unwritten books and bask in his Scottish glow.
Meanwhile her gangster-obsessed father-in-law knows Julia's afraid of him and a bit disappointed his son didn't marry someone else. Her own son lives buried within baggy clothes and teenaged angst, whose passion in life is to tweak his father's pride. Even the Connery ancestors, their ashes inside urns within Julia's bedroom closet, whisper disappointments in her direction. A next-door neighbor known as The Vampire tries to run Julia's marriage even though The Vampire caused her own husband to "explode" years ago.
No wonder Julia starts talking to a figment of her imagination. Rather than provide comfort, this figment reminds Julia of her husband's unaccounted hours-long disappearances. When the figment lays down its challenge--Find me a man and a woman who still desire each other after fifty years of marriage or I'll never go away!--Julia strives to do just that. Each effort brings failure and Julia fears her marriage will soon become a romance-free zone, or worse. With the shocking truth of The Vampire and her "exploded" husband revealed, Julia sees her marriage with renewed passion, and her task becomes clear.
My Occasional Torment celebrates romance not only surviving, but also thriving within marriage, and nothing as simple as a husband can stand in the way.
