"Heads I Win, Tails You Lose"

A librarian's placid domesticity is upended when her professor husband, left paraplegic after a car accident, turns into an incessantly demanding tyrant.

Readers will soon be on edge wondering how much longer her patience and forced unselfishness can hold up in this intolerable bind. What might follow when it snaps?

Involving and suspenseful, this short novel skillfully concocted, unsettling blend of taut psychodrama with eerie magic realism. It's well charactered and grippingly narrated from start to finish.
