This Is The Story of a Happy Marriage

patchettAnn Patchett is my favorite author, but I didn’t know what to make of this book when it first came out.  It seemed like a collection of non-fiction, but it was being sold as fiction.

Does it really matter?  Patchett is an amazing writer.  All these articles, which were part of supporting her while she wrote her novels, are outstanding.  The articles are all great and are full of wisdom.  I couldn’t put it down.

It’s hard to say which article is my favorite.  I found the article about caring for her grandmother very insightful.  The article about her second marriage made me laugh and cry.  The Mercies is a real masterpiece.

I would highly recommend this book!
