Praise for ‘I Married You For Happiness’:
“Captivating . . . Absorbing… You also won’t un-read this odd little book once you’ve finished it. It will make you chafe. It will strike a chord.” – Marie Arana, The Washington Post
“In mourning, the only comfort of science is to assert the uncertainty of all that appears real. And perhaps that is what this slight, plangent novel is telling us: that character is unreadable, that memory is perilous.” – Colin Thubron, NYT
“This slim brush of a book manages to accomplish in a mere 200-plus pages what many novelists try to do in twice the verbiage. . . . Examines the disguises and surprises that energize a lasting marriage.”—Ellen Emry Heltzel, The Seattle Times
“A magical, truthful tale.”— Huffington Post
‘This novel is an elegant vigil… a poised, readable, immediate novel’ Kate Kellaway, Observer
