The Beauty of the Husband
The Beauty Of The Husband is an essay on Keats's idea that beauty is truth and is also the story of a marriage. It is told in 29 tangos. A tango (like a marriage) is something you have to dance to the end.
This clear-eyed, brutal, moving, darkly funny book tells a single story in an immediate, accessible voice — 29 "tangos" of narrative verse that take us vividly through erotic, painful and heartbreaking scenes from a longtime marriage that falls apart. (From Penguin Random House)
