I Married You for Happiness

Recollections. Lily Tuck’s novel, I Married You for Happiness, captures one element of grief: the quirky and unconnected ways in which we remember our relationship with a deceased loved one. Protagonist Nina sits beside her dead husband, Philip, holding his hand. She thinks back in disjointed ways about their life together, especially the joys they shared. I sat with Nina for the two hundred pages in this novel, and at times found myself thinking about the elements of a successful marriage. Mostly, I closed the book feeling glad I reached the last page. Rating: Two-star (Mildly Recommended) Click here to purchase I Married You for Happiness from
