What would you do if your significant other suspected you of having an affair and consequently began reading your private journal?  What does Irene America do?  In an attempt to drive her husband, Gil, crazy enough to let her out of what she sees as a failed marriage Irene begins keeping twojournals.  One in which she writes of the affair and other untruths about her marriage–that’s the one she leaves for Gil to find; the other “real” journal she keeps in a safe deposit box.  To what degree does she succeed?  You won’t know until the final few pages.  And it is so worth it!
