This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage Summary

This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage by Ann Patchett

This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage is an irresistible blend of literature and memoir revealing the big experiences and little moments that shaped Ann Patchett as a daughter, wife, friend and writer. Here, Ann Patchett shares entertaining and moving stories about her tumultuous childhood, her painful early divorce, the excitement of selling her first book, driving a Winnebago from Montana to Yellowstone Park, her joyous discovery of opera, scaling a six-foot wall in order to join the Los Angeles Police Department, the gradual loss of her beloved grandmother, starting her own bookshop in Nashville, her love for her very special dog and, of course, her eventual happy marriage.

The best book I have read all year. It made me laugh and weep and left me in a state of wonder: perfect from first page to last ... [a] masterpiece * Emma Donoghue *
Riveting and visceral * Independent *
There is a stillness and beauty to Ann Patchett's writing that takes the breath away * The Times *
Every so often I read something that makes me want to press it ferverantly and evangelliacally onto everyone I meet ... I loved this * Joanna Trollope, Sunday Telegraph *
