|Okay, I read this book probably 20 years ago, although I don't know when it was published. I remember buying it I think as a "bargain book."
I can't remember much.
It was a FICTION book. From what I recall there was not any explicit language or graphic descriptions of sex or anything.
Main characters are a husband and wife, or maybe it was a boyfriend and girlfriend. I'm guessing their ages were somewhere between 25 - 40.
The guy was a bit obsessive and weird with his feelings toward his wife (but from what I recall, not abusive). For example, the couple of things I can remember:
(1) He was trying to plan a trip for them to go somewhere but the woman was so well traveled (and slept with previous lovers in all of these places) that the man was so frustrated they couldn't go somewhere new. He didn't want to go somewhere she'd already been because (a) she'd already been there and (b) she'd slept with someone there.
(2) If the woman didn't eat all the food on her plate, he would eat it, he didn't want to throw it away. He felt somehow eating her leftovers brought them closer together. I don't think she knew he did this.
So, yeah, this book was weird, and I wish I could remember more, but I don't.
Does this sound familiar to anyone? Would like to know title and author.
