It is 1953, and America is still haunted by the war. Pearlie and Holland live quietly with their son in San Francisco, with a barkless dog in a vine-covered house. Apart from Holland's elderly aunts, the family have no regular visitors. That is until one day, a neat and elegantly dressed gentleman named Buzz appears at their door. The Story of a Marriage portrays three people trapped by the restrictions of their era, and reveals how we can never truly know the ones we love.

Review:
"Inspired, lyrical . . . Mr. Greer's considerable gifts as a storyteller ascend to the heights of masters like Marilynne Robinson and William Trevor. . . . [He] seamlessly choreographs an intricate narrative that speaks authentically to the longings and desires of his characters."--S. Kirk Walsh, "The New York Times""A beautiful, lyrical novel . . . a book full of urgent questions."--"O, The Oprah Magazine," Recommended Summer Reading "Andrew Greer writes with an aching clarity of the heart. This is an exquisite story with shattering realizations about love."--Amy Tan, author of "The Joy Luck Club" and "Saving Fish from Drowning""This is a haunting book of breathtaking beauty and restraint."--Dave Eggers, author of "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" and "What Is the What ""Greer doles out revelations with grace and precision. . . .

A book whose linguistic prowess and raw storytelling power is almost disruptive to the reader. It's too good to put down and yet each passage is also too good to leave behind....Every twenty pages or so, the plot implodes and the characters reveal themselves."--Devorah Vankin, "Los Angeles Times""The chronicle of one marriage, closely and elegantly examined . . . The new novel is built on several narrative surprises that cannot (or should not) be revealed. . . . "The Story of a Marriage" is more than worth the reader's attention. It's thoughtful, complex, and exquisitely written."--Carolyn See, "The Washington Post"
