Publisher's Summary

Ann Patchett is a best-selling novelist, the owner of an independent book store in Nashville and always a welcome guest on this program. All she's ever wanted to do with her life is get paid to write fiction, but early in her career, that wasn't a recipe for financial stability. Instead, she wrote essays. Lots and lots of essays. They appeared in a range of publications from The Atlantic to Outside, and her latest book, This is the Story of a Happy Marriage, collects twenty-two of those essays. Taken together, they chronicle Patchett's path from a struggling young artist to a confident writer. Today is also her 51st birthday. [Broadcast Date: December 2, 2014]
