Conjugal Bliss: A Comedy of Martial Arts


John Nichols

What happens when two oft-divorced and middle-aged sex fiends tie the knot again? Birds do it, bees do it, and Roger and Zelda do it whenever their teenage kids aren’t looking. Their ecstasy is boundless. But when the darker side of Paradise rears its comical head, they suddenly find themselves trapped in a Three Stooges movie directed by Freddy Krueger. This takeoff on matrimony will make you laugh, scream, or grind your teeth in recognition. If you are hitched yourself, take three Valiums before reading!

Detroit Free Press



“Lively, personable narrative and a myriad of piercing insights on the politics of marriage spice this piquant, entertaining domestic comedy set in the American Southwest. Roger, the middle-aged author of a popular sci-fi detective series, finds his seemingly perfect relationship with sexy, fiery Zelda at an end when he marries her. Suddenly, he is dangerously overmatched in a high-stakes marital power struggle. . . . Nichols writes with panache and great wit.”
