A Happy Marriage: A Novel
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: January 2010
Duration: 11 hours 38 minutes
A Happy Marriage is both intimate and expansive: It is the story of Enrique Sabas and his wife, Margaret, a novel that alternates between the romantic misadventures of the first weeks of their courtship and the final months of Margaret's life as she says good-bye to her family, friends, children, and Enrique. Spanning thirty years, this achingly honest story is about what it means for two people to spend a lifetime together and what makes a happy marriage. Bold, elegiac, and emotionally suspenseful, Yglesias's beautiful novel will break every reader's heart while encouraging all of us with its clear-eyed evocation of the enduring value of marriage.
"[A] devastatingly raw appraisal of a nearly 30-year marriage...heart-wrenching." -- Publishers Weekly
