The Marriage Bed

View love and marriage from every angle except Happily Ever After in these five stories and two novel excerpts. Ford sympathetically captures the emptiness of faded love, the disappointment of affection misplaced, the humor of narrowly-escaped misalliance. Many err but none are mocked in this sparely-written, humane collection.
