About Men: The Wedding Guest


How to Create Sense of Place in Writing
Rhythm and Writing
Maja and Perry at the wedding

“There ought to be a rule, a matter of social etiquette, entered into any updated guide to planning wedding parties. It should read something like this: If this is your second marriage, do not invite your ex-spouse because he or she will have one of two choices, neither attractive. One is to refuse the invitation and look bad; the other is to accept and feel bad.”
