Following the success of The Locklear Letters (MacAdam/Cage 2003), Michael Kun returns with his new novel, My Wife and My Dead Wife, a witty look at the strange life of Hamilton “Ham” Ashe.
After suffering a lifetime of stale jokes about his name, the lingering regrets of losing his first wife, and the haunting memories of a childhood prank gone tragically awry, Ham has little ambition other than to pay the rent, get home on time, and not to be too unhappy.
But his modest goals are thwarted by life’s twists and turns. His girlfriend suddenly insists that the two are married and announces her desire to become a fringed-and-ginghamed country-western singer, despite having little musical talent. His boss begins courting a co-worker and Ham is left to handle all the tedious work. His brother’s lies put Ham in the middle of a divorce fight. What’s a poor schmuck to do?
Written with Kun’s characteristic charm and humor, My Wife and My Dead Wife is a tribute to lost men everywhere.
