The harrowing and beautiful story of the first year of the author’s second marriage. In a plainspoken, emotionally accessible voice that readers have not heard from him before, Rick Moody, author of The Ice Storm, Hotels of North America, and other fictions, and of The Black Veil, a prize-winning previous memoir, lays bare, in an eventful month-by-month account, the first year of his second marriage. At this story’s start, Moody, a recovering alcoholic and sexual compulsive with a history of depression, is also the father of a beloved little girl and a man in love; his answer to the question “Would you like to be in a committed relationship?” is, fully and for the first time in his life, “Yes.” And so his second marriage begins as he emerges, humbly and with tender hopes, from the wreckage of his past, only to be battered by a stormy sea of external troubles—miscarriages, the deaths of friends, and robberies, just for starters. As Moody has put it, "this is a story in which a lot of bad luck is the daily fare of the protagonists, but in which they are also in love.” To Moody’s astonishment, matrimony turns out to be a much tougher and more durable vessel than any boat these two participants would have traveled by alone. Love buoys the couple, lifting them above their hardships, and the reader is buoyed along with them.
