ePub ´ Another Marvelous Thing õ Laurie Colwin

An urbane old fashioned older man fall in love despite their differences get married and give birth to a child Once I realized that my love of Laurie Colwin's work wasn't limited to one book I decided to ration everything Another Marvelous Thing was this year's dose and was lovely short but lovely Whenever I read what someone has written about Colwin's writing I always see simple and elegant and those are true but when I think of Colwin I think of her honesty There's never a sense that it's a show The characters might tend to live in a different world or at least a different demographic but the worries and experiences are not isolated to that group and everything is honest if not always how you want things to end except usually I never want the books to end And I always read her books out in public hoping that her family and friends know how much her work is appreciated

Another Marvelous ThingAnother Marvelous Thing is perfect for anyone who knows firsthand that opposites actually do attract These spa This is the third Colwin book I've read I embarked on reading her books because I loved Happy All the Time However I am disappointed so far in her other books I found this one to be very mediocre There were a few problems with this book I think The main one is that there was something uneven about the arc of the story Most of the stories were redundant descriptions of the affair between Frank and Billy but then all of a sudden the story shifted into the life and perspective of Billy I think the whole book actually should have been one short story about the affair My other complaint is about the character development Billy is so mean to Frank every word out of her mouth is sarcastic or demeaning that I found it hard to believe he would be so devoted to her And I also found it hard to believe that Billy would be able to move on to a relatively happy and stable relationship with her husband with this huge secret between them In any case there was something that kept me reading something about the mood and the language that was moving so I am giving it two stars rather than one
