'Til death do us part jut might cause you to wring someone's neck...

Imogen Cameron can't quite figure out how she and her husband, Alex, have plummeted from living in their beloved London townhouse to scraping by in his exgirlfriend's guest cottage. But although the scenic pastures might inspire her flagging artistic career, and getting out of the city might do their son good, Imogen wonders if all the country air in the world could calm the crowds that are invading her marriage.

There's a gaggle of psychotic chickens, an infuriatingly bossy vet, that oh-so-sweet ex-girlfriend-and the feeling that her husband is preoccupied with more than just his job. International bestselling author Catherine Alliott delivers an "intelligent, acutely drawn picture of a difficult marriage" (Daily Telegraph), crafting a witty, sophisticated, and poignant exploration of relationships and family.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Readers who cheered for Helen Fielding's endearing lead in Bridget Jones's Diary (1998) and Sophie Kinsella's Samantha Sweeting, from TheUndomestic Goddess (2005)-those great British chick-lit heroines who discover in the end that they had it in them all along-will do the same for Imogen.

This book is a great getaway book for a vacation, with plenty of drama and relationships to consider.

I do have to say that this novel does have a few brilliant twists and turns along the way.

I thought the relationship between Imogen and all of the animals was a fun aspect of the story and it allowed for a lot of misadventures and added to the humor element.

A Crowded Marriage may be the first book by Catherine Alliot that I have read, but it certainly won't be the last.

She doesn't shy away from difficult, emotionally complex situations but there is still a lightness of touch that has me smiling even when I'm crying.

This is a somewhat amusing story of a woman who moves to the country. The book revolves around Imogen making excuses for her husband, who is mostly distant. The problem for me is that Imogen is just so clueless that I wanted to slap her. It is an ok light read.
