When that longed-for child makes its appearance, it brings a transformation of the Parkers' lives that is as unexpected as it is rapturous, and provides Laurie Colwin with an ideal opportunity to apply her characteristic wit and intelligence to the dizzying experience of motherhood - and to the more unusual forms of families we make for ourselves - in the late twentieth century. A poignant farewell from a much-loved writer, A Big Storm Knocked It Over reminds us again of the singular pleasures afforded by the novel of manners - and of the rare gifts that Laurie Colwin brought to it
Another marvelous thing by Laurie Colwin( Book )

29 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in English and French and held by 1,266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poignant and perceptive tale of an affair, from intoxicating first kiss to bittersweet good-bye Josephine "Billy" Delielle and Francis Clemens are sleeping together. Both are economists and both are married to other people, but the similarities end there. He is fastidious; she is a slob. He delights in good food and fine wine; her refrigerator is always empty. He is old and sentimental; she is young and tough minded. This is not his first extramarital dalliance; she never imagined it was possible to love anyone but her husband. The desire that Billy and Francis feel for each other is as inexplicable as it is undeniable, and the moments they steal together are electrifying, tense, and reassuring all at once. Told from the alternating perspectives of two adulterous lovers, Another Marvelous Thing is an exquisitely crafted story collection that tackles the thorniest of subjects with honesty, grace, and humor.
