9780006496144: Affliction

Annette and Spicer make the perfect pair: he, well-built and likened to Harrison Ford; she, slight and likened to Meryl Streep. But one day, Spicer fails to kiss Annette goodbye as he leaves for the office. The years of marriage shift and change - and the rock of Annette's marriage may be sand.
