Author(s): Mark D'Arbanville
By all accounts Mark d'Arbanville has the 'perfect life': a successful writer, he is happily married with a teenage son. But when he falls in love with another woman, Mark's life unravels, exposing regret, estrangement and heartache.
Yet as his marriage falls apart Mark still can't let go. Nor can his lover, Anna, who won't leave her husband. When Mark finally does make the break, the effect is catastrophic - his wife commits suicide.
The circuit breaker comes when Mark finds his dead wife's journals, and in their pages discovers a man - himself - he can barely recognise. He is forced to take stock of who he is and how men and women live their lives.
In response to The Bride Stripped Bare, The Naked Husband takes a candid look at the way men think, act and feel inside a relationship. Shocking, disturbing but impossible to put down, it's a novel for every woman who ever found the reality of sex and marriage so different to the fairytale, and wondered why.
Mark D'Arbanville is the author of over thirty books of fiction and non-fiction, which have been published in Australia, UK and the USA and translated into sixteen languages. He was born and grew up in London and now lives in Australia. He writes other works of fiction as Colin Falconer. www.threeauthorsinone.com
