Sometimes Too Much is Just Enough Part One with Laura Friedman Williams, Author of “Available” on The Divorce & Beyond Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq. #182

In Part One of this Special Two Part Episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with Laura Friedman Williams, Author of the soon to be released (June 10th) book, Available: A Memoir of Sex and Dating After a Marriage Ends which will make you laugh and make you cry and most importantly, will give you hope!

Laura Friedman Williams truly thought she had the perfect marriage of 27 years. The perfect family and the perfect life and then one night, by the glow of the light from her husband's cell phone, it all came crashing down as she faced the truth that her husband was in love with someone else.  Suddenly she faced a life that included a future that was unknown but also a rewriting of her own history of the marriage she thought she had versus the marriage she now faced.  Laura set out to redefine her life, explore her sexuality and found herself along the way and she shares it all, and I do mean all, with us in her first novel, Available, launching June 10, 2021. 

Think Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big divorcing after almost three decades and three kids and be prepared to laugh, cry and feel inspired.  This is THAT book.  In fact, it's so great, we are making this a Special Two-Part episode with Part Two launching on Thurday, June 10th the day the book launches!

At one point Laura asks, "is this too much?" and you will anwer, "No, it's just enough!

More information about This week's Special Guest, Laura Friedman Williams:

Laura Friedman Williamsis a native New Yorker whose writing credits consist of countless PTA newsletters and program notes for talent shows and school auctions, as well as ghostwritten bar mitzvah speeches for many of her friends. Her wit and wisdom have not yet made it to a larger audience, but her years spent raising children and running events at her children’s schools have kept her writing steady and sharp. She credits her degree in English from Washington University and the ten formative years she spent in book publishing – first in Subsidiary Rights at Warner Books (now Grand Central Publishing) and then at Henry Holt & Company, then as a book scout and finally as a literary agent – for giving her a deep love and respect for the written word. She credits the break-up of her marriage for finally giving her the subject matter about which she both needed and wanted to write. She lives in downtown Manhattan with her three children.
