With or With­out You

After almost twen­ty years togeth­er, Stel­la and Simon are start­ing to run into prob­lems. An up-and-com­ing rock musi­cian when they first met, Simon has been cling­ing to dreams of fame even as the pos­si­bil­i­ty of it has grown dim­mer, and now that his band might final­ly be on the brink again, he wants to go on the road, leav­ing Stel­la behind. But when she falls into a coma on the eve of his depar­ture, he has to make a choice between star­dom and his wife — and when she wakes a dif­fer­ent per­son, with an incred­i­ble artis­tic tal­ent of her own, the two of them must exam­ine what it is that they real­ly want. Unapolo­get­i­cal­ly hon­est and inti­mate­ly writ­ten, With or With­out You is a con­tem­po­rary sto­ry of what hap­pens to rela­tion­ships as the peo­ple in them change, whether slow­ly or in one cat­a­clysmic swoop.
