About the Author: Andrew Sean Greer

Andrew Sean Greer (born 1970) is an American novelist and short story writer.

He is the bestselling author of The Story of a Marriage, which The New York Times has called an “inspired, lyrical novel,” and The Confessions of Max Tivoli, which was named one of the best books of 2004 by the San Francisco Chronicle and received a California Book Award.

The child of two scientists, Greer studied writing with Robert Coover and Edmund White at Brown University, where he was the commencement speaker at his own graduation, where his unrehearsed remarks, critiquing Brown's admissions policies, caused a semi-riot. After years in New York working as a chauffeur, theater tech, television extra and unsuccessful writer, he moved to Missoula, Montana, where he received his Master of Fine Arts from The University of Montana, from where he soon moved to Seattle and two years later to San Francisco where he now lives. He is currently a fellow at the New York Public Library Cullman Center. He is an identical twin.

While in San Francisco, he began to publish in magazines before releasing a collection of his stories, How It Was for Me. His stories have appeared in Esquire, The Paris Review, The New Yorker and other national publications, and have been anthologized most recently in The Book of Other People, and The PEN/ O. Henry Prize Stories 2009. His first novel, The Path of Minor Planets, was published in 2001.

Pearlie Cook inicia el relato de su vida con una sinuosa y devastadora exploración del misterio que encierra toda relación íntima. Estamos en 1953, y la joven Pearlie vive en San Francisco, en una apartada y neblinosa zona residencial junto al océano. Allí, cuida celosamente de su hijo y de su apuesto marido, Holland, de salud delicada desde que volvió de la guerra. Para protegerlo de sobresaltos innecesarios, Pearlie suaviza el sonido de los timbres de la puerta y el teléfono, y elimina del periódico las noticias desagradables. La vida familiar transcurre con placidez y armonía hasta que, una mañana, un desconocido aparece en la puerta de su casa, y todo cambia.
El relato de Pearlie, reflexivo y sutil, sobrio y pausado, cobra creciente intensidad con inesperadas y sorprendentes revelaciones —sobre sí misma, sobre su marido, sobre su pasado— que mantendrán en vilo al lector hasta el desenlace.
Última novela de Andrew Sean Greer —que se situó en el panorama literario internacional gracias al enorme éxito de Las confesiones de Max Tivoli, acogida con inusitado entusiasmo por la crítica—, Historia de un matrimonio está ambientada en la América de la posguerra, los años de la guerra de Corea, la segregación racial y el juicio de los Rosenberg. Una época de supuesta inocencia y simplicidad, que en realidad estuvo marcada por las barreras invisibles del miedo y el silencio.
