A Happy Marriage , Yglesias's return to fiction after a thirteen-year hiatus, was inspired by his relationship with his wife, who died in 2004. Both intimate and expansive, it is a stunningly candid novel that alternates between the romantic misadventures of the first weeks of the courtship of Enrique Sabas and his wife Margaret and the final months of her life as she says good-bye to her family, friends, and children--and to Enrique. Spanning thirty years, this achingly honest story is about what it means for two people to spend a lifetime together--and what makes a happy marriage. "Anyone in a relationship will be able to relate," said USA TODAY .

Told from the husband's point of view, with revelatory and sometimes disarming candor, the novel charts the ebb and flow of marriage, illuminating both the mundane moments and the magic. Bold, elegiac, and emotionally suspenseful, Yglesias's beautiful novel will break every reader's heart--while encouraging all of us with its clear-eyed evocation of the enduring value of marital love.
