D. T. MaxThe narrators of The Dog of the Marriage, use their impressive intelligences to tamp down their emotions, and there is something even more sad about their inability to express their pain for the very sophistication they bring to it. Why, if they are stressed or frantic, do they not just tell us so? And if they spend every living moment being horrified at the mess they have made of their lives, why displace their feelings onto, say, a missing dog? To which my answer would be: reading The Dog of the Marriage, you understand they have no other choice -- and the rest of us don't either.
