Initially I thought that the many, many things George Carlin had to say about his wife Sally Wade were charming, funny and sweet. I even wished for a lover who would appreciate me in the same way. After a while, though, his intense absorption with her became a little creepy and smacked of desperation. My final impression of the relationship--reinforced by Wade's discussions of Carlin's afterlife--was that it was one of considerable mutual dependence, possibly to an unhealthy degree. This may be an unfair appraisal; I acknowledge the possibility that my cynicism on the subject of romance has tainted my judgement.

Not what I expected. It's a bunch of lovey-dovey notes to and from George Carlin. Not at all interesting. A lot of details, notes and stories about their dogs. This woman was 40 years younger than Carlin and I can't say what their relationship was like but I don't think it was too intellectual.
