Marriage: A Duet: Two Novellas

Marriage: A Duet: Two Novellas Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now available in paperback: "Eloquent and earthy . . . this duet is worth contemplating." (Philadelphia Inquirer)

In the first novella, A Married Woman, Caroline Betts keeps a careful vigil over her husband's deathbed. For 40 years, she had been a devoted wife. But during one awful moment in their otherwise good marriage, her husband William was in love with someone else. At the end of William's life, Caroline confronts her sorrow, anger, and odd flashes of relief and feelings of rebirth.

In the second novella, A Married Man, David — husband, father, businessman — finds his sense of well-being and achievement undermined by the betrayal of his wife, who's had a brief affair. The novella takes readers inside the couple's heartbreaking efforts to reclaim their marriage. Elegantly written, profoundly affecting, and subtly illuminating, Fleming's fiction debut is a revelation.

Synopsis:

Two beautifully written novellas are connected by the theme of infidelity; the first written from a woman's perspective, the second written from a man's. Fleming is a nationally recognized journalist and TV commentator whose work has appeared in the "New York Times, Newsweek, New Yorker, Vogue," and "Redbook."
