Marry Me (Paperback)
Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days
For every happily-ever-after fairy tale that waxes poetic about true love, there is a piece of flash fiction from Dan Rhodes to provide the perfect antidote. In this collection of bite-sized vignettes, Rhodes masterfully explores the distance between what we believe is real and what others know to be true-and nowhere is this distance greater than in the realm of romance.
Told with inimitable humor, with, and irony, as well as deep undrstanding and compassion, these short stories are guranteed to elicit both yelps of laughter and winces of recognition. All offer the gift of humor, though none are a paean to the institution of marriage. By turns poignant, surprising, and laugh-out-loud funny, Dan Rhodes has created a fresh and recognizable cast of scorned lovers, jilted fiancees, and vengeful spouses who wholeheartedly subscribe to the adage that "all is fair in love and war.
