Epigraph
Dedication
First words
My wife had a story – one story that she told over and over and over again.
Quotations
I began thinking that my wife, in her own way, oppressed me as much as any unjust social system oppressed and workingman.  She was denying me the right to be happy.
I realized then that our marriage had grown into a finely balanced contest between her pleasure and my pain.  That's all we had.  An epic, intimate prizefight.  And now she'd won.  I have never been more despondent than I was at that moment.

Book description
In this short fiction with echoes of both O. Henry and Hitchcock, a husband is driven to extremes by the anecdotal story that his wife repeats endlessly.   [retrieved from Amazon 11/27/11]
