In this collection, Hilma Wolitzer invites us inside the private world of domestic bliss, seen mostly through the lens of Paulie and Howard\'s gloriously ordinary marriage. From hasty weddings to meddlesome neighbors, ex-wives who just won\'t leave, to sleepless nights spent worrying about unanswered chainmail, Wolitzer captures the tensions, contradictions, and unexpected detours of daily life with wit, candor, and an acutely observant eye.
