"Fortunately, Ive gotten sloppier over the years and hes getting neater, so it works out." An unusual twist that might cause trouble in some relationships has been turned to advantage by Giant Foods patriarch Joe Danzansky, who discovered some years ago that the very sound of his wifes voice puts him to sleep. Now, when tired after a long day, he expressly requests that she talk to him so that he can be gently lulled into dreamland.

"lf only myhusband would stop smoking, at leastin the bedroom," she sighs. "But he justcant sit down to a typewriter or abook without a cigarette in his mouth.A recent subtle hint to eliminate saidhabit from the bedroom took the formof repainting the room and sending"every blessed thing out to thecleaners," says Susan. "I keep trying." When Esther Coopersmith, the PerleMesta of Potomac, discovered early inher marriage to Jack that he loved toshop for groceries (" noticed we hadtwo of everything in the refrigeratorfrom his shopping and mine") she relin-quished this task to her spouse, whohas done it ever since. Thus no conflictin the Coopersmith home, where theremight have been in others. For the dozen years WalterWashington was mayor of the District,his wife had to cope with the frustra-tion of being scheduled by schedulers,"who felt they needed to make up ourschedules but didnt need to teJI usabout it." Finally, Dr. Bennetta W<tsh-ington says, Were starting tolive like normal people again and it isdelightful." Patrick Hayes, Washington im-presario, admits that in almost fortyyears of an otherwise blissful marriage,there has been the recurring nuisanceof finding his half-filled coffee cups allover the house. His wife has put themin the clothes hamper, the filingcabinet, the closets, but never in thekitchen. Hayes recalls that the late Sen.Robert Taft was forever in trouble withhis wife because grocery lists, carefullyplaced in his pockets, tended to stay there, since the senator consistentlyforgot to stop at the store on the wayhome from work. Claire and Joe Dratchs professionaland personal relationship of thirty-seven years has thrived in spite of dif-ferences in taste (his office at theirclothing store is contemporary andcluttered; hers is Victorian and prim).Joe also has closed his eyes to her habit of wearing his terry cloth robe, rather than one from her extensive closet ofclothes. All that has been said simply seems to prove, as WiJliam Blake the poetknew over 150 years ago: "Love to faults is always blind, always is to joy inclind." ODD DOSSIER/JUNE 1979/13
  • 10. Tradition enriches our lives, gives us continuity.Perhaps that is why in a fragmented, fast-pacedsociety such as ours, we hold fast to the ritual ofmarriage. No other tradition spawns so manysymbols-of union, prosperity, fertility, familyand happiness. And no other day celebrates thiscontinuity more than the florid, silver, white andscented day of days, the wedding day.
  • 11. In the 1960s, weddings were wed-ins. Couples spoke vows on a moun-tain top at midnight, tied the knot on abeach at dawn. The free-wheeling 60sgave way to the free-falling 70s, whensky-diving couples pulled the nuptialrip cord to float gently down to earthlylife. The inevitable end to these nonsen-sical nuptials is the return of the traru-tional wedding. Some of Washingtonsmost well-known recent singles. Pagelee Hufty, Teddy Proxmire and SusanGoldwater to name a few, were wed inthe old-fashioned way. But why have couples come full cir-cle? Why, in the face of the stagger-ing divorce rate, do men and womencontinue to enter the institution of marriage? The deliriously happy Page Lee Huf- ty, who donned a Victorian lace gown to wed Baltimores Benjamin Griswald,gave her reasons: "Marriage is a very J acqueline Bouvier and John F. Ken·old tradition.

Carolines mother is left to die and be buried at the public expense in a paupers cemetery, with hardly a ripple of remorse, by her child. Robert and his mother, before his marriage to Caroline, have engaged in an in- cestuous relationship, the mechanics of its fulfillment taking place in an over- sized bed that serves as a kind of sym- bolic sexual arena throughout the book. Caroline sees Roberts mother masturbating in that bed, in what must have been intended as something ter- ribly symbolic. Annas mother brings her husbands body back to Germany for burial, leaving her and her sister (who later dies of diptheria) with friends, never to return. So much for mother love. The fathers never had a shot at it. In- deed, none of the men in this book is given half a chance. Robert has a homosexual relationship with a fellow musician, contracts syphillis, and both die in a veritable porridge of open sores, broken pustules and ulcerations. Indeed, Grumbach describes gleefully Roberts death in clinical horror with particular emphasis on cataloguing Annas nursing ministrations to the poor mans genital sores.

  • 40. Carlolines female lover, bums himself to death. Even a dog, aptly named Paderewski, a male, of course, dies an abysmally humiliating death, a blatant foreshadowing of Roberts gruesome demise. Thrown in for good measure is a lit- tle morsel of lesbian necrophelia (Caroline gets into bed with the dead Anna, and touches every part of her body"). lf there is any comfort at all in· this mean little exercise of inadvertent black humor, it is that these three "characters" will be buried together, Caroline to join them shortly, on a grassy knoll, next to the dog Paderewski. It is only fair to state that this book has not been reviewed in a vacuum. 1t has been highly praised, even acc1aim- ed by a number of what are generally called "respected critics"- a tight little mutual back-slapping circ1e to which Grumbach belongs. This, then, represents a minority opinion. Worse yet, it represents one novelists opinion of another novelists work, a terrible and highly vulnerable burden to bear. Nevertheless, there is nothing more ex- citing, more mentally stimulating than the dash of one persons perception against anothers vision. To us writers, a good literary brouhaha, replete with bloody ego gore, thin-skinned retaliation, cruel- hearted revenge, even displays of printed pique and pettiness would be better than passivity and those endless columns of pap that parade pallidly in our publications. (Even this contrived alliteration is worthy of a swipe in the literary groin.) Grumbachs book raised my hackles. It invites controversy. It has been over- praised by kindly peers. But that has nothing to do with its merits either as a work of the imagination or as an exer- cise of the novelists art. -WARRHN ADLER LOVI & GUILT & THI MIANIJIO Of LIPI, lTC. by Judith Viorst Simon & Schuster $5.95 Judith Viorst has to be every educated, aware, city womans favorite "mot" maker and insightful surrogate.

()p<on 7 d•yo With its imaginative, bizarre and R•..-rva110ns 737 1370 fast-paced plot involving the kidnapp- ing of the Presidents four-year-old daughter and incredible intrigue within the CIA, the book manages to be something more-and, at the same time, something less-than the formula suspense thriller. Sharp may be the first congressional wife in history (she is the thirty-seven- year-old wife of Muncie, Indianas Democratic Rep. Philip Sharp) to create a thriller. She is certainly the first to receive such industry acclaim and financial rewards as Sunflower is commanding. The scenes involving the White House and Capitol Hill are handled deftly. One of a dozen murders, if you can imagine, takes place in a mens room. Her story moves swiftly £rom Scotland to Washington to Vienna to the ancient ruin of Knossos on Crete and on to Athens. One could wish Sharps characters, particularly that of superspy, almost-hero Richard Owen, were a bit more fleshed out, but then spies by nature are faceless. Even so she manages to engage reader sym- pathy for Owen, even as he carries out his horrendous and baffling assign- ment. This first novel, we are told, took seven years of writing and rewriting.
