Book description (from the back cover):
Frederick Barthelme's most powerful novel to date, Two Against One is the portrait of a marriage gone askew. On Edward's fortieth birthday, his estranged wife, Elise, appears unannounced at the door, triggering a series of events that will involve the couple in a bizarre triangle and lay open thte workings of a fifteen-year marriage. Set against the suburban new South that Barthelme has made peculiarly his own, Two Against One is a wry, revealing comedy about the nature of modern love, divorce, and reconciliation, by a mster storyteller who has "shown us the chaos of life, and from it, lifted an order we've not seen before" (San Francisco Chronicle).
