A marriage plot with no infidelity or emotional strife (of the humorless variety, at least) is certainly an odd duck in most domestic fiction but Colwin’s novel flies in the face of convention. Illuminating the everyday humor and anxieties of married life with penetrative wit, it is a work interested in celebrating love’s less pronounced colors. The characters’ endless bemusement and befuddlement is an immense pleasure, revealing the innumerable ways in which we are capable of love.
