About this title:

Synopsis: This classic Chronicle book remains available as a print-on-demand title. You can purchase it from an online bookseller or by order from your local bookstore.

Review: Marriage and parenthood, "grubby and desperate," are explored in nine short stories by Erin McGraw. With characters both good-natured and reckless, she paints a realistic, albeit difficult, picture of transcending everyday mishaps and difficult relations through perseverance and marital affection. From Gwen, the newly re-married radio talk-show host whose charming ex tries to woo her on the air, to the Neills whose tough times with money troubles, a wild-hormoned teenage son, an unwanted pregnancy, and looming infidelity challenge their commitment. For all the trials and mistakes her characters endure, they manage to keep stumbling into happiness. And this, as McGraw illustrates, is what makes family life so enticing.
