In the title novella, THE AGE OF GRIEF, a man meditates on the vagaries of love and family life. Certain that his wife has fallen in love with someone else--and been spurned by him--he tries to recover what he calls the ironic middle, the good-humored, matter-of-fact heart of the marriage where he can keep her from knowing of his own sorrow.From the Trade Paperback edition.
