Description

Product Description

"Like Jane Austen, Johnson delights in the worldly rituals surrounding courtship and marriage... she is a philosopher as much as a novelist."—The New Yorker

From the author of the acclaimed bestseller and National Book Award finalist  Le Divorce, a sparkling comedy of manners once again set in the world of Americans in Paris

Anne-Sophie is a young Frenchwoman engaged to Tim Nolinger, an American journalist hot on the trail of a breaking story: The theft of a valuable illuminated manuscript from a private collection in New York, which may now be in the possession of a reclusive film director living on the outskirts of Paris. As Tim, Anne-Sophie, a pair of American antique dealers, and one amorous member of the local gentry converge on the director''s chateau, the director''s wife—a former actress—is accused of desecrating a national monument. Add to that a disappearing American; a hunting contretemps; a wrongful arrest; and murder, and you have this sexy, stylish, delight of a novel that celebrates the paradoxes of marriage and morality as they are perceived on both sides of the Atlantic. Filled with the author''s pithy insights and hilarious asides, Le Mariage is Diane Johnson at her very best.

Review

“Another wickedly clever comedy of manners… In six degrees of separation, everybody is connected, yet the coincidences are artfully managed. Johnson''s crisp manipulation of the engagingly convoluted plot is rooted in her central theme of French misconceptions about Americans, and vice versa. As exemplified by Holly and Cray, even those who share the same culture habitually fail to estimate the other accurately. Johnson''s barbs are sophisticated and sharp, her amused irony is easily maintained, and her finesse at narrative is as fine tuned as her cultural sensitivity and her instincts about human behavior.”— Publishers Weekly  (starred review)

"Splendid entertainment... Johnson is one of our most astute cultural critics."— The New York Times Book Review

"A comic novel in the classic manner, with smart style, piquant suspense, and dog-earingly epigrammatic prose."San Francisco Chronicle

"A witty romp."—Elle

"Johnson whips love and marriage into a frothy souffle...delicious."—Entertainment Weekly

"Like Jane Austen, Johnson delights in the worldly rituals surrounding courtship and marriage...she is a philosopher as much as a novelist."The New Yorker

"Rich, nuanced, and highly satisfying."Glamour
 
“Johnson is a beguiling writer, serving up catty observations with loopy good humor… near-perfect… a masterly storyteller who can pull off a storybook ending—love, joy, a trip down the aisle—without making us gag.”Salon

A mediocre entertainment, the type of book where the characters seem to serve the plot and are not very interesting in their own right. The insights into French culture by an expatriate reader are fun, but this novel does not live up to Le Divorce. It is a sequel only in that Antoine Persand is one of the important secondary characters, and his mother makes an appearance

I don''t know of any other modern writer who is capable of capturing the essence of America and France as well as Diane Johnson does. Although this novel doesn''t surpass Le Divorce, it remains a great read. Never heavy-handed, the book centers on three or four characters, French and American, as they experience France and America at their absolute worst. French nationalism rears its very ugly head and in the U.S., Oregonians prepare for war with the government while amassing great stores of weapons and paranoia. The events these fatal characteristics summon are filled with pathos and, even while we recognize our worst natures as human beings, French or otherwise, we also are touched by the tragedies these expertly drawn events evoke.

Le Mariage starts out strong, with many of the elements, including snobbery, that worked so well for Le Divorce, but ends on a rather confused and unsatisfying denoument. It leaves the reader feeling he had sat down to a delightful multi-course formal dinner only to be served the coffee, so to speak, before dessert.

One of my Favorite Books
Reviewed in the United States on May 31, 2014
I read this enamored and enthralled with the setting, the dialogue and the power of the author. She is bracingly observant and intelligent and this translates absolutely. I never, ever felt bored reading this, annoyed or let down. I love this book.

Creative writing students are told that ''the more in advance (of writing) you know about your characters, the more convincing your eventual stories will be''. Diane Johnson has no need of this advice. She understands each one of them, their motivations, their desires, and their contradictions. She is fully in control of their complexities. She is also very witty and introduces amusing asides to keep the reader entertained should the rather convoluted plot cause the attention to wane a little. I assume that the novel is social satire disguised as a comedy thriller. Social satire is a difficult art. I suspect that most of Johnson''s readers will feel that they have some rapport with at least one or two of her creations and perhaps enjoy the pleasure of being mildly mocked by a novelist of superior insight and intelligence. But despite all my efforts I found that I could raise no empathy for any of the characters portrayed, and actively disliked quite a few of them. I am unfamiliar with the social world depicted and, perhaps regrettably, am content to stay that way! So despite the occasions when I could laugh or smile at the humour I found it hard to stay become as involved in the complex plot. Perhaps there is a certain coolness at the heart of Johnson''s acute observations, at least in this case, or perhaps there is some flaw in my own perceptions, as I may well not belong to the target age group at which the novel is directed. So I can admire the skill, enjoy many of the references, and see the funny side, but find my self ditanced from the heart of the book.
