de Tammy Letherer
Sobre o livro
It was a Tuesday night, just before Christmas, when Tammy Letherers husband of twelve years asked her to join him at the table, where he sat with a piece of paper and two fingers of scotch in front of him. He had three things to say: 1. He'd had an affair shortly after their wedding. 2. He'd been using escorts on business trips. 3. He was leaving her for someone hed spent one day with in Las Vegas. Then her best friend, now a stranger, walked out the door, leaving her on the floor and their three children in their beds.InThe Buddha at My Table, Letherer describesin honest, sometimes painful detailthe dismantling of a marriage that encompasses the ordinary and the surreal, including the night she finds a silent, smiling Thai monk sitting at her dining room table. Its this unexpected visitation, this personification of peace, that sticks with her as she listens to her husband say hurtful, shocking thingsthat he never loved her, he doesnt believe in monogamy, and he wants to wrap things up with her in four weeksand allows her to find the blessing in her husbands betrayal. Ultimately, its when she realizes that she is participating in her life, not at its mercy, that she discovers the path to freedom.
