Synopsis

'Tender [and] nostalgic' The Times



What's married life like from the man's point of view?

What does a wedding actually mean to a man?

Do men really not know how to do laundry?



Now, with masculinity in crisis (again), it's more important than ever to understand the secret lives of husbands. Couldn't our relationships be better navigated if we listened, impartially, to how the world looks from inside a man's head? Do they feel sad at the thought of never falling in love again? Would they ever admit that their partner's cooking is worse than their mother's?



Melissa Katsoulis's mission is not to find the perfect husband, or the worst. It's about talking to married men and understanding their world. We are inundated with statistical research about gender and domestic politics but it doesn't tell us how things really feel to real men. Through interviews with ordinary men, experts and imaginary Greek gods, Melissa will uncover everything you need to know about the man in your life.



From a whistle-stop tour of husbands through history to husbands in the nursery, husbands on holiday, husbands in the kitchen and husbands of a certain age, The Secret Life of Husbands is a warm and witty journey of discovery about the modern-day husband.

Since joining The Times books desk twenty years ago, she has continued to be a regular reviewer for various national newspapers.
