I Married You for Happiness

Lily Tuck, read by Barbara Caruso. HighBridge Audio, unabridged, five CDs, 5.5 hrs., $26.95 ISBN 978-1-61174-619-8
In this audio edition of Tuck’s latest novel, when artist and homemaker Nina discovers the dead body of her mathematician husband, Philip, she ruminates over the peaks and valleys of their marriage, as household objects—e.g., a well-worn jacket, the table setting for an uneaten dinner—trigger vivid memories including everything from youthful courtship in Paris to adultery, angst, and the trials of parenthood. Barbara Caruso’s nuanced narration and crisp delivery match the author’s prose and her command of language. Additionally, Caruso’s tone—which conveys shock too recent to manifest itself as screams and the simultaneous experience of fatigue and insomnia—captures the essence of Nina. Highly recommended for fans of contemporary literary fiction. An Atlantic Monthly hardcover. (Sept.)
