This Is The Story Of A Happy Marriage isn't about marriage! It's a "sparkling" (The New Yorker) collection of writings about all sorts of things, from dogs to opera to reading to the nature of truth and invention. Ann Patchett is beloved for her fiction mostly, but she's such a thoughtful and inspired writer that she can make any (every) thing interesting, relevant, and meaningful just by spinning words around it.

A great choice for fans of Patchett's fiction, for readers interested in the narrative and/or autobiographical essay, and for quiet but curious thinkers on ordinary and extraordinary things.
