The 158-pound Marriage, Paperback Book
3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Severin Winter is not a man to take things lightly.

His loving, like his wrestling, is decidedly heavyweight, a fact not lost on Utch, a lonely Viennese lady whose husband is rather taken (literally) by the delicate Edith, Severin's underweight wife.

A bizarre menage a quatre is the result of these convoluted desires as Irving blends farce and tragedy in another bubbling and brilliant novel.

Not among Irving's best, but neither is it a waste of time.
