Stephen Dixon’s His Wife Leaves Him is an intimate exploration of the interior life of a husband who has lost his wife.
Martin thinks about his life with his wife Gwen. Reminders of their shared past, some painful, some hilarious, others blissful and sensual, appear and reappear in the present. Stories made from memories merge with dreams of an impossible future they’ll never get to share. Story by story he recounts for himself, good and bad, moments of grace, occasions for disappointments, promises, arguments, anger, resentments, and generosity. From these moments are their lives made. In His Wife Leaves Him, Stephen Dixon has succeeded in vocalizing the process and rhythms of remembrance.
