Sobre o livro
Can you come sit at the table? Tammy Letherers husband of twelve years spoke these words on a Tuesday night, just before Christmas, after he had put their three children in bed. He had a piece of paper and two fingers of scotch in front of him. As he read from the list in his hand, his next words would shatter her world and destroy every assumption she'd ever made about love, friendship, and faithfulness.InThe Buddha at My Table, Letherer describesin honest, sometimes painful detailthe dismantling of a marriage that encompasses the ordinary and the surreal, including the night she finds a silent, smiling Thai monk sitting at the same dining room table. Its this unexpected visitation, this personification of peace, that sticks with her as she listens to her husband reveal hurtful, shocking thingsthat he never loved her, he doesnt believe in monogamy, and he wants to wrap things up with her in four weeksand allows her to find the blessing in her husbands betrayal. Ultimately, its when she realizes that she is participating in her life, not at its mercy, that she discovers the path to freedom.
