ADVICE TO A YOUNG WIFE FROM AN OLD MISTRESS
by Michael Drury

Michael Drury, despite her name, is a woman who was both a free-lance writer and author of several books. She grew up north of San Francisco, graduated from Stanford University, and went on to write for Harper's and Life. This work had originally been published by Doubleday in the 1960s and in demand for 20 years.
It is a book for all seasons of love, and for all lovers, individuals and partners.
Honest, knowing, and direct Michael Drury's wife and mistress find that they can learn much from each other, as will readers young and old.

About the time of our publishing the second edition of this book, the Reader's Digest put it on its cover and excerpted a selection of the work. Also Barbara Walters, on her television show 20/20, interviewed Jean Harris who said "There is a marvelous little book called Advice to a Young Wife from an Old Mistress, which if you don't have a copy of, you should...."
These events were instrumental in our selling the publishing rights of this book to Random House who published both a hard and soft cover edition of Advice to a Young Wife from an Old Mistress.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
"Honest, perceptive, unsentimental, this book is a treasure that can change lives. Way ahead of its time, it is only now coming into its own—or we are coming into our own, so that we are finally capable of hearing what Michael Drury has written about love with such joy and unflinching courage."
—Robert A. Johnson , author of He, She, We, Owning Your Own Shadow
