A Happy Marriage is both intimate and expansive: It is the story of Enrique Sabas and his wife, Margaret, a novel that alternates between the romantic misadventures of the first weeks of their courtship and the final months of Margaret's life as she says good-bye to her family, friends, and children -- and to Enrique. Spanning thirty years, this achingly honest story is about what it means for two people to spend a lifetime together -- and what makes a happy marriage. Yglesias's career as a novelist began in 1970 when he wrote an autobiographical novel at sixteen, hailed by critics for its stunning and revelatory depiction of adolescence. A Happy Marriage, his first work of fiction in thirteen years, was inspired by his relationship with his wife, Margaret, who died in 2004. Bold, elegiac, and emotionally suspenseful, even though we know what happens, Yglesias's beautiful novel will break every reader's heart -- while encouraging all of us with its clear-eyed evocation of the enduring value of marriage.

Remember that you are best friends.

" Freddie Maas's revealing memoir offers a unique perspective on the film industry and Hollywood culture in their early days and illuminates the plight of Hollywood writers working within the studio system. An ambitious twenty-three-year-old, Maas moved to Hollywood and launched her own writing career by drafting a screenplay of the bestselling novel The Plastic Age for ""It"" girl Clara Bow. On the basis of that script, she landed a staff position at powerhouse MGM studios. In the years to come, she worked with and befriended numerous actors and directors, including Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, and Eric von Stroheim, as well as such writers and producers as Thomas Mann and Louis B. Mayer. As a professional screenwriter, Fredderica quickly learned that scripts and story ideas were frequently rewritten and that screen credit was regularly given to the wrong person. Studio executives wanted well-worn plots, but it was the writer's job to develop the innovative situations and scintillating dialogue that would bring to picture to life. For over twenty years, Freddie and her friends struggled to survive in this incredibly competitive environment. Through it all, Freddie remained a passionate, outspoken woman in an industry run by powerful men, and her provocative, nonconformist ways brought her success, failure, wisdom, and a wealth of stories, opinions, and insight into a fascinating period in screen history.

Secrets of a Happy Marriage says exactly what the title means: a marriage that is happy, and a marriage made in heaven. With divorce so rampant today, it is rare to find happily married couples with 50 years of love. The book begins with the six Greek words that define love. It moves to Joye's story in Jamaica, then Joe's story in beautiful Jamaica, then their marriage story in New York. Stories of the children at Harvard and Cornell Universities are also included. The adventures of Joe and Joye are highlighted as they travel to London, Scotland, Rome, South Africa. They topped off their travels with a cruise on the Queen Elizabeth, the world's most glamorous ship. The heart of the book focuses on one verse of scripture: "Husbands, love your wives just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her"Eph.5:25. Joe's response to that command is "How can I, a sinful man, love my wife as Christ loved the church? That is a question that sincere men ask themselves. The answer you are seeking is in this book.
