In this funny, grouchy, wryly tender novel, Robison shows us a marriage in very rough shape careening toward the breaking point. Deveaux, Harvard professor, is tracking her bad husband, who has vanished again. She finds him holed up in a seedy bar. To sober him up, Deveaux enlists her husband Raf's old friend, an ex-alcoholic, and Raf's new friend, a holistically inclined contortionist stripper. Profanity. Bookseller Inventory # 11752

About this title:

Synopsis: BOOK

From Library Journal: This is a stylish, but ultimately unsatisfying love story of modern marriage. Paige is a published poet, a Harvard professor on leave with a grant. She's chasing after husband Raf, a drinker and womanizer who's escaped from her. She finds him on the rough side of Houston with old buddy Raymond, but the reunion does not lead to clear sailing in the marriage. There is no real resolution of the difficulties, and although the story is littered with offbeat characters and much self-analysis, it never quite jells as a novel. The main characters are all attractive, but neither likable nor interesting. For larger modern fiction collections.
- Ann H. Fisher, Radford P.L., Va.
