Here is a summary of Matrimony from Readinggroupguides.com:
Matrimony explores themes of love and friendship, sickness and health, money and ambition, desire and tensions of faith --- the kinds of big issues that make it perfect for a book club discussion.
Matrimony starts in 1987, when Julian Wainwright, an aspiring novelist and the Waspy son of New York old money, meets beautiful, Jewish Mia Mendelsohn in the college laundry room. So begins a love affair that, spurred on by family tragedy, carries the couple to graduation and beyond, through a series of college towns, spanning twenty years. Matrimony is about what it's like to fall in love when you're young and to try to stay in love as you reach middle age. As People Magazine said: "Charming.... Henkin keeps you reading with original characters, witty dialogue, and a view that marriage, for all its flaws, is worth the trouble."
There have been many reviews on other blogs of Matrimony. I won my copy from Dar over at Peeking Between the Pages and you can see her review here. At Home With Books, Bermudaonion's Weblog, and Booking Mama also posted reviews of Matrimony.
Books on the Brain actually had a guest post by Joshua Henkin that you can read here.
