Told with inimitable humor, with, and irony, as well as deep undrstanding and compassion, these short stories are guranteed to elicit both yelps of laughter and winces of recognition. All offer the gift of humor, though none are a paean to the institution of marriage. By turns poignant, surprising, and laugh-out-loud funny, Dan Rhodes has created a fresh and recognizable cast of scorned lovers, jilted fiancées, and vengeful spouses who wholeheartedly subscribe to the adage that "all is fair in love and war."
