What We Talk About When We Talk About Love
by Raymond Carver
This is serious stuff, folks, and it's as real as it gets. We've got two families (in the form of married couples) grappling with love in all its messy glory. Back stories of abusive relationships bump up against tales of true love grown old. Add some gin and you've got a recipe for a good night of drama, complete with bickering, swear words, and anti-depressants. Ah, family.
