Audio commentary: His Wife’s Secret Admirer

Here is some audio commentary that you can read about.Here’s something I would only admit as part of an audio commentary exclusive: This story came out much longer than I had expected it to. I think it took me longer to get through Daniel’s day (even with the inclusion of the golf game) than I thought it would.

I don’t write many stories with male lead characters, but there was this beautiful (and long) article in Esquire a few years ago about studying love. It fascinated me. The writer, A.J. Jacobs becomes a guinea pig to scientists who are studying the effects of love on the brain. The catch is that he is the only long-term married guy in the study. And it turns out beautifully.

Love is crazy complicated. It’s messy. And, sometimes, it lasts beyond all the doubters.
