Playing House in Provence is my fifth book. It had been gestating for years while I was writing Traveling While Married, to which it is a sequel. (Why, I wonder, do we liken writing a book to gestating a baby?) Because giving birth feels giving birth to a book. A very big book. A long labor of love.

Traveling While Married

Traveling While Married (Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill) is a gender-driven, book of humorous essays covering a lifetime of travel a deux, from honeymoon to Elderhostel, including, among many others, an essay on packing

She compensates for not knowing what to take by taking everything she owns

another about whether or not to travel with another couple

Now that you are four, it is twice as likely that someone will lose a passport or leave their prescription drugs in the last hotel

and another on how to be a summer house guest.

An SUV-full of zucchini from your garden is not a welcome hostess gift and will be considered a hostile, provocative act.

Traveling While Married

Praise for Traveling While Married:

Mary-Lou Weisman may just be the Erma Bombeck of travel writing. For, like Bombeck, she offers sage advice, generously laced with frequent dollops of humor.
