At center: Marshall Lockard, who teaches English at a small New England college, and his wife, Sonja, a real estate broker in the college town. As the novel opens, Marshall has become increasingly remote, walling himself off from his students by his ironic tone and from his wife by his air of detachment. The marriage has reached a danger point: Sonja is playing at having an affair with her boss; Marshall is flirting with a student. And they are about to lose the one older person who means anything to them - Marshall's stepmother, Evie, who is Sonja's closest friend, and who perhaps holds the key to Marshall's state of mind. Into this unsettled situation comes one of Marshall's colleagues, trailing clouds of trouble - an infuriated wife, a student accusing him of rape. He sets off a chain of explosions that catapults Marshall and Sonja out of the semi-uncomfortable trajectory of their lives into a profound reexamination of their marriage and themselves

These fifteen stories by Ann Beattie garnered universal critical acclaim on their first publication, earning Beattie the reputation as the most celebrated new voice in American fiction. Today these stories -- "A Vintage Thunderbird;" "The Lawn Party, " " La Petite Danseuse de Quatorze Ans," to name a few -- seem even more powerful, and are read and studied as classics of the short-story form. Spare and elegant, yet charged with feeling and with the tension of things their characters cannot say, they are masterly portraits of improvised lives. From the Trade Paperback edition

Mrs. Nixon : a novelist imagines a life by Ann Beattie( Book )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 955 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pat Nixon remains one of our most mysterious and intriguing public figures, the only modern First Lady who never wrote a memoir. Beattie, like many of her generation, dismissed Richard Nixon's wife: "interchangeable with a Martian," she said. Decades later, she wonders what it must have been like to be married to such a spectacularly ambitious and catastrophically self-destructive man. Drawing on a wealth of sources from Life magazine to accounts by Nixon's daughter and his doctor to The Haldeman Diaries and Jonathan Schell's The Time of Illusion, Beattie reconstructs dozens of scenes in an attempt to see the world from Mrs. Nixon's point of view. Like Stephen King's On Writing, this fascinating and intimate account offers readers a rare glimpse into the imagination of a writer."--Dust jacket
