Joyce and Marshall each think the other is killed on September 11—and must swallow their disappointment when the other arrives home. As their bitter divorce is further complicated by anthrax scares, suicide bombs, and foreign wars, they suffer, in ways unexpectedly personal and increasingly ludicrous, the many strange ravages of our time. In this astonishing black comedy, Kalfus suggests how our nation’s public calamities have encroached upon our most private illusions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant, thought-provoking Funny and disturbing all at once. I was drawn into the historical accuracies that turned into bizarre and elaborate -- and yet all too well recognized happy fictions at the end of this excellent book.
