Über diesen Titel
A look at contemporary marriage analyzes the institution through four couples--an upper-class couple married in the 1950s; a blue-collar couple with traditional roles; a middle-class African-American couple; and an egalitarian, bohemian couple. 25,000 first printing. Tour.From Booklist:
Harris is able to insinuate herself into people's lives and then describe them succinctly and insightfully. A New Yorker staff writer whose first book was about Hasidic life, Harris decided to write about contemporary marriage to see how that most basic of human units has fared in light of the changes the women's movement has wrought. Harris, who must be easy to talk to (she's certainly a pleasure to read), found four couples willing to share their private selves: the McLanes, an upper-class couple; the Robbins, a blue-collar couple; the Jacksons, a middle-class African American couple; and the Clarks, the most egalitarian and artistic of the bunch. Each couple's story is compelling, as true stories always are. Harris manages to cover family histories, courtship, sex, money issues, arguments, children, and housework. What emerges from these intriguing anatomies of marriages is that the improved status of women has changed marriage for the better and that people work "terribly hard all the time" both at their jobs and at their relationships. Donna Seaman
