In this masterful graphic novel, comics pioneer Will Eisner weaves a darkly humorous tale of three Jewish-American families joined in wedlock: the old-money Arnheims, the more humble, midwestern Obers, and the upstart Koyns. At its heart, the novel is a study in the disappointment of "good marriages." With characteristic irony and empathy, Eisner perfectly captures the subtle differences in class and culture between the families and the perils of a parent's best intentions.
