Ann Leary is the best!

Ann leary is a fantastic writer! She is so down to earth and so funny!!! The books are amazing and I hate it when I finish them, I love the way it feels like you are chatting with a girlfriend, a really warm, honest, genuine, kind one! you will love this book!

Great beach read!

Funny and engaging - great insight on what it must be like living a celebrity life. I think all women can see a little bit of Julia in themselves. Sit back and enjoy!

Thoroughly Enjoyable Novel!

I bought Outtakes from a Marriage (hardcover version) a couple of months ago after a couple of friends had recommended it. I thought it would be a great way to kick back, relax, and read a good novel while on vacation. Unfortunately the vacation never came because of a family medical emergency. While sitting in a hospital waiting room as my mom underwent a serious surgical procedure, and while my sister was nearby flipping out, I pulled Outtakes from a Marriage out of my tote and began reading. Well I couldn't stop reading. Ms. Leary's writing style, wit, humor, and vivid descriptions, took me far away from what was going on around me. I became very engrossed in the story line and couldn't get over how quickly the time had passed. A couple of times my sister brought me back to reality to ask me what the heck was so book...that's what! I would recommend this book in a heartbeat. I love to read and didn't really know what to expect when I bought this book, but I'm very glad that I did. The following week my sister borrowed my book and she was pleasantly surprised at how much she also enjoyed Outtakes. I look forward to reading future books by Ms. Leary!

Loved it

From start to finish, Ann Leary has given the reader a rich and transparent description of the character of Julia Ferraro and her life as the wife of famed actor Joe Ferraro and mother of their two children. Although a legitimate member of the celebrity circuit, Julia's growing irreverance for the superficiality of it all, gives the humble, "regular guy" reader a bridge to share this lifestyle with the author. Regardless of any actual or imagined similarities to what the reader thinks is Denis and Ann's real life, the author has written a believable story that will resonate with parents, wannabes, and insiders alike. Reading this book reminded me of the movie "Living Out Loud" with Holly Hunter demonstrating the very active (and frightfully intense) minds of women as they weave in and out of relationships, learning about themselves along the way.

Wonderful Outtakes

In the hands of a less gifted writer, Outtakes from a Marriage could have been a cliché: the story of a woman who seems to have the perfect life (two beautiful children, a rich and famous husband) but finds out there's turmoil beneath the surface. Fortunately, Ann Leary knows about celebrity (her husband is Denis Leary), marriage, and, clearly, writing. She skillfully takes the reader along a path that's compelling, believable, and very real. I loved this novel, and look forward to reading more of Leary's fiction.
