Product Description
<p>Blending literature and memoir, Ann Patchett, author of <em>State of  Wonder, Run,</em> and <em>Bel Canto,</em> examines her deepest commitments—to writing, family, friends, dogs, books, and her husband—creating a resonant portrait of a life in <em>This is the Story of a Happy Marriage.</em></p><p><em>This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage</em> takes us into the very real world of Ann Patchett’s life. Stretching from her childhood to the present day, from a disastrous early marriage to a later happy one, it covers a multitude of topics, including relationships with family and friends, and charts the hard work and joy of writing, and the unexpected thrill of opening a bookstore.</p><p>As she shares stories of the people, places, ideals, and art to which she has remained indelibly committed, Ann Patchett brings into focus the large experiences and small moments that have shaped her as a daughter, wife, and writer.</p>
