When I bought Mary Tabor's, (Re)Making Love: A Sex After Sixty Story, I had certain expectations about the book, and I was not disappointed. But I got more -- much more -- than I expected. I discovered that this memoir had a punch to it and transcended its own subject. It has subtle levels of complexity that I'm still discovering as I reread it.

There's no doubt that this is indeed the story of a woman in her sixties suddenly cut loose from her moorings, and her sometimes tragic, sometimes funny, road to finding love and herself again. The book is interspersed with literary references and some unlikely things (hint: has to do with cooking). It's also richly entertaining. Mary tells her story courageously and with breathtaking candor, and a surface reading of the book will be very enjoyable and rewarding.

But a deeper reading of the book -- beyond the plot -- will yield more, where you will discover themes and insights that Mary did not always consciously intend to reveal. This, though, is the stuff of great literature and writing, where the greatest insights are often gleaned and discerned by the reader who dares to plumb the psyche of the writer. It is through this that we internalize her experiences, recognizing and discovering ourselves, not just for how we have responded to life's crises, but how we might. There are cautionary tales here (e.g., Internet dating) that may just influence some readers on how not to react in a crisis.

Daisy Hickman, of the SunnyRoomStudio blog, interviewed Mary last October and characterized (Re)Making Love as a "living memoir." This is not as obvious as it seems. Mary began her book as a blog, writing about events as they unfurled and whirled.

I reviewed this book last Spring. It aired on [...], and I am sharing it again with you because this is a book that deserves to be read!

Here is the original review in it's entirety:

I'm still not sure how I feel about the whole electronic book phenomenon (which is likely here to stay), but I cannot think of a better book to have begun my e-book journey with than Mary Tabor's new, soon-to-be-released, book by 3ones, Inc., (Re) Making Love: A Sex After Sixty Story. This book began as a blog - yes it did! This will be Mary Tabor's second book, her first, The Woman Who Never Cooked, is an award-winning collection of linked short stories.

(Re) Making Love: A Sex After Sixty Story is a memoir about loss and love, as well as a journey for both Mary and her husband "D" as they try to maneuver through the muddiness of a separation. It is at times laugh-out-loud hysterical. At other times, it is sad and speaks of desperation. Above all, it is honest and so incredibly intimate, which makes it feels funny to call her Mary Tabor, Ms. Tabor, or even the author. Any of those sound too formal because I feel as if I have sat with Mary in the "chef's kitchen" she so often references, strolled the streets of Paris along side her, cried with her over the inability to cram a lifetime of memories into a storage-lacking flat, or pondered right along with her about unfulfilled desire.

Mary writes in free flowing beautiful prose. She tells her story in a non-linear fashion, dropping in bits and pieces of the real world, literature, including a little T.S. Eliot, a few favorite recipes, occasional links, some photographs, and a number of references to her beloved Rom-Coms (romantic comedies).

Mary Tabor, starts her excellent book with a reference to the movie Charade, and ends with an equally effective metaphor from the same movie. There is nothing about Mary's insightful novel that is a charade, of course, and that is just part of what makes (Re) Making Love a book that is deserving of the reader's attention. Mary Tabor has written a novel that removes the veil from who we are as people, and who we are as people in relationships. There is no charade in the search for who one truly is, the writer knows this; a remarkable achievement in an age when the existential search for the soul has been mitigated to cliche adventures in a dark and stormy night. There is nothing cliche about what Mary Tabor has written and there is nothing cliche about the desire to understand the connection, the longing of romance and desire, that one person has with another person. Her story is wholly unique beautiful and imaginative. Not only has Mary remade love in her novel, she has remade the medium in which an author can communicate with her audience. (Re) Making Love: started as a blog and has been made, or remade, into a wonderful book that all should read. The work itself is a remaking of how we conceive of the novel and how we remove the charade from our self.

Mary Tabor's (RE) Making Love is one of the best memoirs I've read in quite a long while - and I've read more than a few. I found myself fiercely cheerleading her on as she fought her way through an unwanted separation from her husband of 21 years. Her writing is smart, funny, lyrical and at times, heartbreaking.

How many times have you read a blurb that used the words "unflinchingly honest" when describing a memoir? I always say to myself, well of course, shouldn't it be? But often they are not. (RE) Making Love is that - and more. Mary puts beauty into ugly honesty, laughter into sad honesty and hope into painful honesty.

There is even a surprise ending!

I highly recommend this book, I bought the paperback version here: [...]
