Hourglass: Time, Memory, Marriage

 

With time, every marriage changes considerably into a beautiful or horrible experience depending on the small choice we make and accidents that happen. Hourglass puts a probe into the life of the author Dani Shapiro. The author of the book boldly accepts the reckoning of her own marital life and presents to us a literary and extremely emotional memoir which could be said to be a guide on how a happy life is reckoned by small mistakes we do not acknowledge.
