Reviews

Praise for `I Married You For Happiness':"Captivating . . . Absorbing... You also won't un-read this odd little book once you've finished it. It will make you chafe. It will strike a chord." - Marie Arana, The Washington Post"In mourning, the only comfort of science is to assert the uncertainty of all that appears real. And perhaps that is what this slight, plangent novel is telling us: that character is unreadable, that memory is perilous." - Colin Thubron, NYT"This slim brush of a book manages to accomplish in a mere 200-plus pages what many novelists try to do in twice the verbiage. . . . Examines the disguises and surprises that energize a lasting marriage."-Ellen Emry Heltzel, The Seattle Times"A magical, truthful tale."- Huffington Post

In this audio edition of Tuck's latest novel, when artist and homemaker Nina discovers the dead body of her mathematician husband, Philip, she ruminates over the peaks and valleys of their marriage, as household objects-e.g., a well-worn jacket, the table setting for an uneaten dinner-trigger vivid memories including everything from youthful courtship in Paris to adultery, angst, and the trials of parenthood. Barbara Caruso's nuanced narration and crisp delivery match the author's prose and her command of language. Additionally, Caruso's tone-which conveys shock too recent to manifest itself as screams and the simultaneous experience of fatigue and insomnia-captures the essence of Nina. Highly recommended for fans of contemporary literary fiction. An Atlantic Monthly hardcover. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
