To celebrate the recent release of my novel Byuck through Strange Violin Editions, I’m pleased to also release Marital Matters, a closely related work of “non”-fiction.

Byuck’s genesis was a short and silly essay called “To Build a Fence” written in 1999 when I suddenly (and accidentally, but that’s another story) found myself a student at Brigham Young University. Which is a great school, no question, but I was leery of attending a school owned by a church (even my own church) and frankly feared its marriage culture. Which can be summed up like this:

Do it! Asap! What are you waiting for? Go! go! go!

So, to cope, before attending even a single class, I wrote “To Build a Fence.” As a good Mormon boy I was all in favor of being married. It was the getting married that stressed me out.
