A HISTORY OF MARRIAGE
Shortlist, Canada Governor-General Award for Nonfiction 2011
What does the "tradition of marriage" really look like? Elizabeth Abbott paints an often surprising picture of this most public, yet most intimate, institution. Ritual of romance, or social obligation? Eternal bliss, or cult of domesticity? Abbott reveals a complex tradition that includes same-sex unions, arranged marriages, dowries,
self-marriages, and child brides. Marriage- in all its loving, unloving, decadent, and impoverished manifestations- is revealed here through Abbott's infectious curiosity. "Abbott is an excellent storyteller with an eye for touching and amusing tales. An enjoyable read, sure to provoke and surprise."
Globe and Mail
