(Review from the author)
it was amazing

I wrote this novel so perhaps my five stars are not to be trusted. But how many books can make you laugh about inequality? I think "The Marrying Kind" could really be a catalyst for change with regard to segregated marriage laws.

I hope so, anyway.

I had this idea that if I wrote a novel that was really funny and mainstream but also had a strong POV about equality that folks would read this book, and laugh so much that at the end they wouldn't even realize that I had convinced them that we all deserve to be equal. They would just think they had always been on the right side of history. Good idea? If you think so please buy a copy, read it, and tell your friends about it. Thanks!
