Thursday Thirteen #104


Thirteen Things About Joshua Henkin's Novel Matrimony

  1. Nest week I will be hosting a giveaway of a single copy of the newly released paperback which Joshua Henkin will inscribe personally to the winner.
  2. Matrimony is a novel about writing a novel. But that's just the frame for a story about marriage. Well duh you might think. But it is so much more than a story about a marriage or even about the several marriages exampled; it is about marriage as a social institution and how it shapes our lives and our characters. And at the same time it is about:
  3. Parents and Children
  4. Money and Class
  5. Friendship and Family
  6. Dreams and Domesticity
  7. Ambition and Mortality
  8. Love and Loss
  9. Loyalty and Betrayal
  10. Infidelity and Forgiveness
  11. Learning and Living
  12. Character and Relationships
  13. Matrimony is a coming of age story set primarily on a series of college campuses that follows a couple (actually two couples) who met in their freshman year at college through the several stages of life as they learn life's most important lessons and sometimes pass and sometimes fail the tests circumstance present.

Good TT list reflecting matrimony. It is too bad though infidelity has to be included. People need to learn that those that love longest, love best.

My TT this is week is about the 13 Myths of Sarah Palin

Happy TT!
