At last, the full story behind Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman's epic romance, including stories, portraits, and the occasional puzzle, all telling the smoldering tale that has fascinated Hollywood for almost two decades. Featuring anecdotes, hijinks, interviews, photos, and a veritable grab bag of tomfoolery, this is not only the intoxicating book that Mullally's and Offerman's fans have been waiting for, it might just hold the solution to the greatest threat facing our modern world: the single life.
"Widely admired celebrity couple Mullally (Will and Grace) and Offerman (Parks and Recreation) chat their way comfortably through a book about their lives and marriage. It's framed as a series of dialogues on subjects such as their first meeting, their families, their early lives, and, of course, sex. In between the long chapters are brief ones by each of the partners, including one by Offerman on Domestic Competence, in which he notes that both are, despite their fame, still capable of sewing on buttons or mending/patching ripped clothing, and one by Mullally in which she suggests that the key requirement for a good life is an amazing mattress. Both partners come across as likable, grounded, unpretentious, and flawed enough to be believable. An extra treat is a series of photos of the two posing, often with one or more of their dogs, with the jigsaw puzzles they complete on a regular basis. Those hoping that Hollywood couples are just like the rest of us, only maybe a little bit nicer and richer, should be pleased.--Margaret Quamme Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review:
"After 18 years together, actors Mullally and Offerman divulge the lurid details of their life together in this uproarious oral history. The pair chronicle their entire relationship, beginning with their initial meeting during a 2000 production of The Berlin Circle in a small L.A. theater, when Mullally was an up-and-coming sitcom star and Offerman lived in a basement without electricity or plumbing. Despite seeming a little mismatched to some, the two fell in love and haven't spent more than two weeks apart since (thanks to their two-week rule). Amid humorous recollections of "rubbing each other's genitals with our hands" in the Sistine Chapel and scenes of Mullally jumping onto Offerman's back to make it to the theater in time for her Emmy Award announcement, the pair plunge into deeper discussions of their Midwestern families ("They work hard, but they don't talk about their feelings," says Offerman), their age difference (Mullally is 12 years older), and their decision, after years of trying, not to have children (Mullally was 43, and "Nick didn't have the trillions of sperm one might have hoped for"). Mullally and Offerman's unmistakable chemistry shines throughout this wildly fun collection of sincere conversations and hilarious personal essays. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
