The Story Of A Marriage
This evocative and poignant novel set in 1950s San Francisco tells the story of a marriage affected by illness and the near-loss of a child. But it is actually about much more: the threat of the Korean War, racism and segregation and the history of America in the 20th century. If you're after a thoughtful and eloquent read in a similar style to 'Atonement', look no further.
