A HOUSE INTERRUPTED: A Wife's Story of Recovering from Her Husband's Sex Addiction is a 2011 memoir and self-help book written by Maurita Corcoran and released by Gentle Path Press.
Fourteen years into her marriage, Corcoran’s husband, Brian, a physician, admitted he was a sex addict. As a result of couple's therapy, individual counseling and treatment, the couple, who are the parents of four, remain married. Throughout the process, Corcoran kept a journal and, in 2011, turned her diary entries into A House Interrupted.
The book is divided into three sections :
- Hell on Earth
- The Desert of Recovery
The book's publisher noted that Corcoran’s story “proves that women can emerge from the betrayal, anger, and heartache to become authentically peaceful and resilient sources of support to other women.”
Myrtle Beach Online wrote about the topic of sexual addiction, saying: "This is a problem that has probably existed as long as humankind but that is only recently gaining attention. Myrtle Beach’s own Maurita Corcoran is gaining national fame for her boldness in revealing her own experience as a survivor of an experience with a sex-addicted spouse in her book."
