This is the Story of a Happy Marriage by Ann Patchett

collection of writings on love, friendship, work, and art.

I'm giving this a rave. Although I liked some pieces more than others, the ones I liked were SO good!  'The Wall' - research on applying to the LAPD to become a policeman,  'Love Sustained'  -  losing her Grand mother. 'The Bookstore Strikes Back'  - establishing her own bookstore - Parnassus Books in Nashville.
