Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman reveal the full story behind their epic romance--presented in a series of intimate conversations between the couple.
The year: 2000. The setting: Los Angeles. A gorgeous virtuoso of an actress agreed to star in a random play, and a basement-dwelling scenic carpenter said he would assay a supporting role in the selfsame pageant. At the first rehearsal she surveyed her fellow cast members, determining if any of the men might qualify to provide her with a satisfying fling. Her gaze fell upon the carpenter, and like a bolt of lightning the thought struck her: no dice. Moving on.
Yet, unbeknownst to our protagonists, Cupid had merely set down his bow and picked up a rocket launcher . . . that fired a love rocket (not a euphemism). The players were Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman, and the resulting romance, once ignited, was . . . epic. Beyond epic. It resulted in a coupling that has endured to this day; a sizzling, perpetual tryst that has captivated the world with its kindness, athleticism, astonishingly low-brow humor, and true (fire emoji) passion.
How did they do it? They came from completely different families, ignored a significant age difference, and were separated by the gulf of several social strata. Megan loved books and art history; Nick loved hammers. But much more than these seemingly unsurpassable obstacles were the values they held in common: respect, decency, the ability to mention genitalia in almost any context, and an abiding obsession with the songs of Tom Waits.
Eighteen years later, they're still very much in love and have finally decided to reveal the philosophical mountains they have conquered, the lessons they've learned, and the myriad jigsaw puzzles they've completed. Presented as an oral history in a series of conversations between the couple, the book features anecdotes, hijinks, 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.

Really enjoyed this audiobook! With a podcast feel Nick and Megan offered a great listen that I will gladly listen to again and plan to buy for a friend or two!
Can No Longer Access
I purchased this book (which is wonderful by the way) on December 17, 2018 for $22.68. I listened to the book in its entirety. When I went to go listen to it again back in June 2019, it was mysteriously gone from my audiobook library AND missing from my purchase history. I contacted Apple Support and was told the third party provider of the audiobook was doing revisions and it will re-appear in my library when those revisions are done. I saw that the book was still available for purchase — for $14.99 — and asked if I could just get a refund and I’d repurchase the book. Apple denied my request. Now it’s August 2019 and the audiobook is still missing. CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE FIX THIS? I feel like I’ve been robbed of $23.
These two go on and on in a detailed history of their lives. I had to give up in mid childhood. Only diehard fans of Nick And Megan could care to know this much about them.
