Who Wouldn’t Want To Marry George Clooney

March 2, 2010

Marrying George Clooney is our newest MUST READ for any and all women who have ever experienced a hot flash, a longing  for the old high school boyfriend, or the hopes that one day you will find your purpose (the clock is ticking). This memoir is funny, poignant and raw to the bone.  A personal journey about menopause, midlife, marriage, mothers, friendship, and love. It’s about being wide awake in the middle of the night, growing up, growing older, and ultimately it’s about giving birth to and falling in love with ourselves.

Amy Ferris is the kind of inspiring friend we are all looking for. While reading MGC you will find yourself in good company, with plenty of empathy to go around.

Read this and share your thoughts here. We have been inspired to start our first on-line book club. Please join us.

    I “discovered” Amy’s book on the website shewrites.com–first book I’ve ever pre-ordered, just based on our sharing a name and the title. And then I read it–everyone should read this book. I laughed. i cried. I wrote a fan letter. And I learned that Amy Ferris not only is an exquisite writer, she’s an extraordinary human being.

  3. Yes, MGC a read that takes one in to so many touching personal places. An integrated motherstory! Amy is never afraid to BE herself and express from there. A gift to all of us.

    OMG! I’ve just started MGC, it’s already rib-tickling, head nodding with agreement, through your head back guffaws (is that a great word?! If I hadn’t already taken my sleep aid I would have been up all night reading . . . Thank you so much, Amy for sending your book to the Matters That Matter retreat. Such a bonus! Will you come when the pilot group gathers again?

    Eight chapters into reading MGC and I can not put it down. The book club I attend is meeting next week and I have not finished that book, because this one is just far better! Amy, thank you so much for the gift of this book. It is a real treat and I intend to share it with friends so they can benefit from the messages of laughter and wisdom that you weave with your words.

    Thanks so much Amy for so graciously shipping all those books to the Matters That Matter Retreat. I am part way through it, love your irreverant humor. I will pass it on to my daughter who is going through menopause & will appreciate it even more than I as I can now look back & smile.

    Molly & Kristine,

    I’m so happily filled to the brim….

    Your retreat last weekend was beyond what I’d hoped for. You’re both such brave, authentic women — a dynamic pair who made all of us feel so welcome and COMFORTABLE to just be ourselves.

    To also receive Amy Ferris’ book, Marrying George Clooney, well what a topping!

    THANK YOU with all my heart,
    Anna Powell

    I am passing out MGC to my book club. It is amazing and like it was written for me. I know Amy doesn’t know me, but I think she speaks for me and lots of women my age.

  15. Amy,

    I’m jazzed to have MGC next in line on my ‘can’t wait to read’ shelf. Thank you Amy for sharing it with all of us MTM retreat participants. My Portland,OR women’s book club will be hearing all about it at our next meeting. I’m lobbying you it to be our next selection. Would you like to do a call in with us when we meet to discuss it?
