I found the book a good read? at least the first 4/5. Kalfus introduces a pair of interesting characters ? Marshall and Joyce Harriman ? who must have brought a considerable amount of emotional baggage to their marriage, considering their spite-filled, impending divorce. 9/11 plays a significant role in each of their lives, and a relative's wedding adds a degree of comic relief as well as a glimpse into Joyce's and Marshall's emotional well-being ? or lack thereof. The party Marshall attends seemed out of place in the novel, except to demonstrate how pathetic his life has become, or will be. And the ending! A fantastical neoconservative's version of how the war in Iraq was supposed to turn out.
