I reviewed the book here last summer. Since then, this beautifully told story of a more or less ordinary marriage has garnered praises far and wide. It was named a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, a National Booksense Pick and a Borders Original Voices Selection.
Here’s what Pulitzer Prize-winner Michael Cunnigham had to say about Matrimony:
“In the tradition of John Cheever and Richard Yates … a novel about love, hope, delusion, and the intricate ways in which time’s passage raises us up even as it grinds us down. It’s a beautiful book. Here’s to its brilliant future.”
