The Story of Arthur Truluv

The Story Of Arthur Truluv by Elizabeth Berg

In the six months since the November day that his wife, Nola, was buried, Arthur Moses has been having lunch with her every day. He rides the bus to the cemetery and when he gets there, he takes his sweet time walking over to her plot: she will bee there no matter when he arrives. She will be there and be there and be there.

Based on this intro, would you read more or pass on this book?

  13. Reminds me of a bit I saw on tv on Sunday about a man who visits his wife’s grave three times a day or so. I guess it’s a testament to love, but also a bit sad.
