Garrett in Wedlock
Garrett Hughes acquires an instant family when he marries May-Annlouise Holmes, who has two children, Lynn and Turpin. Married life isn't quite what Garrett expected, especially when ex-husbands come into the picture. Before long, one of May-Annlouise's exes, an explorer suffering from a tribal form of mad cow disease, shows up at their doorstep to bond with his son before dying-and ends up living with them. Later, Garrett takes his step-daughter, Lynn, to India to find her natural father, a bigamist.
As various circumstances test and try their domestic bliss, Garrett and May-Annlouise must reinvent their marriage. As full of surprises as the institution it celebrates, Garrett in Wedlock is a distinctive literary debut, and a powerful rendering of a union that truly tests the vow "for better or worse."
