Title Profile & Character Information

This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage

Annotation
The author of six novels, including PEN/Faulkner Award winner Bel Canto, Patchett has also written nonfiction. Here she pulls together essays appearing in the Atlantic, Harpers, and more to offer overall perspective on Patchetts life, from a topsy-turvy childhood to the sorrows of a bad first marriage and the joys of a second happy one. A sense of what truly grounds Patchett-her writing, her friends, her husband-emerges.
