Abstract:

When Pauline walked into his mother's store in the Polish neighborhood of Baltimore, Michael felt she was the one. Both young and good-looking - with the uncertainty and fervor of World War II only adding to their passion - Pauline and Michael seemed to be made for each other. Hastily married, the two soon after discovered just how mismatched they really are. Pauline's impulsive and impractical hit-or-miss approach to life is nothing like Michael's cautious and judgmental plodding-this, among other differences, causing them years of disagreement and painful arguing. When, years later, their 17-year-old daughter disappears, the estranged couple is left with no choice but to rescue their grandson Pagan from Haight-Ashbury and raise him themselves. Carefully wrought and brimming with wonderfully evocative details of time and place, THE AMATEUR MARRIAGE is an intelligently nuanced and sympathetic look at marriage, family, and human relationships in general.
