This dramatic poem tells a tragic story - the collapse of a marriage after the suicide of a child - within the topsy-turvy venue of a divorce court ruled by an alternately cynical and sentimental judge. John Bricuth cleanly balances sensitive portrayals of painful lives with hilarity, chaos, and occasionally ribald caricatures. Bricuth's verse will absorb anyone seeking to unravel the truths of modern family life."--Jacket.
