Ambivalence, a Love Story. Portrait of a Marriage. Praise for Ambivalence, a Love Story Both in its general assertions and particular instance, this is a riveting book. Praise for Ambivalence, a Love Story. A poignant self-portrait of what we rightly call 'a family man'.

AMBIVALENCE, A LOVE STORY Portrait of a Marriage. 224 pp. St. Martin's Press. MARRIAGE is not based on our biology (whooping cranes are among the few animals that mate for life), contraception has made the need for fidelity obsolete, and nearly everyone who considers the institution seriously winds up observing that when two people are truly committed to each other, there is no need for religion to bless or government to codify their relationship. Ambivalence traces the inner life of a man coming into adulthood: on being first generation, on interfaith marriage, on playing the accordion and ultimately on the question of whether we are better off solitary or coupled. But at heart, it is a tender - if circumspect - love story. An astonishing middle-aged debut. Ambivalence, a Love Story - eBook.
