Uest or a nervous breakdown Toby doesn't know she won't answer his texts or callsIs Toby's ex just angry like always Is she punishing him yet again for not being the bread winner she was As he desperately searches for her while juggling his job and parenting their two unraveling children Toby is forced to reckon with the real reasons his marriage fell apart and to ask if the story he has been telling himself all this time is true.. Fleishman is in Trouble is a incisive sharply observed and humorous novel that examines the nature and anatomy of a American marriage family divorce and identity at the privileged end of the social and economic spectrum set in New York The Jewish middle aged hepatologist Toby Fleishman and his wife Rachel are getting divorced retaining joint custody of their children 11 year old Hannah and 7 year old Solly Whilst this is an entertaining read there are aspects that grate and irritate it is overly repeating and in some of the portrayed sex life of Toby A surprised Toby now discovers he is a much desired man wanted by many women which is in sharp contrast to his younger days when disappointment and rejection were his lot Nowadays the modern world of online dating and apps have him plunging in enthusiastically keen to expand his sexual experiencesHis ambitious wife Rachel was the primary bread winner in their marriage with her successful talent agency and her efforts to push him to be eually go getting were rebuffed by him Toby s world shifts considerably when Rachel unexpectedly disappears leaving him with the children to look after he becomes increasingly frustrated as he is unable to locate the elusive Rachel Left with all the responsibilities of parenting in the modern age of mobile phones and problematic social media Toby s professional career begins to suffer Toby is to find that his thoughts and beliefs regarding his marriage are not necessarily so In a narrative related by Toby s old friend Libby a former magazine features writer herself married with a daughter the author is partially successful in her use of the literary trojan horse device to lay bare the unacknowledged realities that women face in society through role reversal the issue is that there is an insufficient focus on the womenWe become privy to Rachel s perspective on her marriage and Libby s inner thoughts and feelings in the exploration and analysis of gender differences amidst the differing social and cultural attitudes and expectations when it comes to women in comparison to men This is a satirical multilayered read on the complexities of life the challenges of marriage the ineualities parenting the differing experiences of ageing faced by men and women middle aged angst identity and the self inflicted further pressures placed within marriages parenting and family I found this a particularly thought provoking reading when it comes to looking at and evaluating the concept of marriage in our complicated modern contemporary realities Many thanks to Headline for an ARC
