No my favorite book ever, but there is alot going on under the surface here: How does your marriage effect your children? What does it mean to be in a 4-some, can it ever really work? I found the ending uncomfortable and didn't like the male main character 'Severin' - though perhaps both are intentional. The wrestling analogy is intriguing - 158 lbs, perhaps just all a bit too much.
