Description
The poignant and perceptive tale of an affair, from intoxicating first kiss to bittersweet good-bye. Josephine "Billy" Delielle and Francis Clemens are sleeping together. Both are economists and both are married to other people, but the similarities end there. He is fastidious; she is a slob. He delights in good food and fine wine; her refrigerator is always empty. He is old and sentimental; she is young and tough minded. This is not his first extramarital dalliance; she never imagined it was possible to love anyone but her husband. The desire that Billy and Francis feel for each other is as inexplicable as it is undeniable, and the moments they steal together are electrifying, tense, and reassuring all at once. Told from the alternating perspectives of two adulterous lovers, Another Marvelous Thing is an exquisitely crafted story collection that tackles the thorniest of subjects with honesty, grace, and humor. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Laurie Colwin including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate.
