*National Bestseller*
A hilarious and emotionally charged novel about a couple who embark on an open marriage-what could possibly go wrong?
Lucy and Owen, ambitious, thoroughly-therapized New Yorkers, have taken the plunge, trading in their crazy life in a cramped apartment for Beekman, a bucolic Hudson Valley exurb. They've got a two hundred year-old house, an autistic son obsessed with the Titanic, and 17 chickens, at last count. It's the kind of paradise where stay-at-home moms team up to cook the school's "hot lunch," dads grill grass-fed burgers, and, as Lucy observes, "chopping kale has become a certain kind of American housewife's version of chopping wood."

When friends at a wine-soaked dinner party reveal they've made their marriage open, sensible Lucy balks. There's a part of her, though-the part that worries she's become too comfortable being invisible-that's intrigued. Why not try a short marital experiment? Six months, clear ground rules, zero questions asked. When an affair with a man in the city begins to seem more enticing than the happily-ever-after she's known for the past nine years, Lucy must decide what truly makes her happy-"real life," or the "experiment?"

Sarah Dunn
Una ruptura siempre es dolorosa, sobre todo para quien la sufre. Holly Frick acaba de padecer una de las peores rupturas, aquella en la que sigues enamorada de quien te dejó. Mientras arrastra su ánimo por los suelos y con las heridas a flor de piel, una amiga, felizmente casada, le confiesa que está a punto de tener una aventura; mientras que otra, le pide consejo sobre su relación amorosa..., ¡con un ex de Holly! Se pregunta que si todas sus amigas están dispuestas a disfrutar de la vida, por qué ella va a ser menos. Decide abrir su corazón a los hombres, pero a falta de uno, serán dos: un perro encantador y un joven no menos agradable. ¿Te digo un secreto: lee este libro. Te va a gustar, pero sobre todo te va a hacer feliz.¿ The Miami Herald ¿Los secretos de la felicidad es una comedia urbana de clásica factura con tantos personajes neuróticos como para completar el reparto de una película de Woody Allen. Una novela muy divertida.¿ The Boston Globe ¿Un sabroso regalo en el que se combinan perros, divorcios y cambios vertiginosos.¿ Marie Claire ¿Lo que te atrapa de la novela de Dunn y te hace pasar página tras página es la singularidad de Holly... Una heroína a la antigua usanza. También muy divertida.¿ The New York Times Book Review ¿Dunn lanza a una serie de personajes en Nueva York haciéndolos evolucionar con habilidad y precisión.¿ The Wall Street Journal ¿Dunn es una avezada y compleja escritora que no sacrifica la riqueza emocional de su obra por alcanzar un sentido del humor coloquial: logra ambas cosas. Aún se puede encontrar auténtica literatura dentro de la literatura para mujeres.¿ Time ¿Una inteligente novela, corrosivamente divertida, articulada con diálogos ingeniosos y punzantes con un tono agridulce.¿ The New York Observer ¿Dunn entrelaza varias vidas neoyorquinas en esta impactante novela. La viva y graciosa prosa fluye a lo largo de la misma. Elegante y divertida.¿ Publishers Weekly
