About the Book

The Story of a Marriage

One of the most widely acclaimed authors of his generation, Andrew Sean Greer is a writer of great daring and originality. “We think we know the ones we love.” So Pearlie Cook begins her indirect and devastating exploration of the mystery at the heart of every relationship: How can we ever truly know another person? It is 1953 and Pearlie, a dutiful wife and mother, finds herself living in the Sunset District of San Francisco caring for her husband and child. Then one Saturday morning a stranger appears on her doorstep and everything is thrown into question --- especially her marriage. Lyrical and surprising, The Story of a Marriage is a masterpiece confirming Andrew Sean Greer as “one of the most talented writers around.” (Michael Chabon).
