His funny message accompanied a photo of the newlyweds with their dogs.

Josh Lyman is a married man! West Wing alumnus Bradley Whitford has married his former Transparent costar, Amy Landecker, the couple announced Thursday. His funny message accompanied a photo of the newlyweds with their dogs. Landecker, wearing a simple blue dress, clutched a bouquet, while Whitaker grinned in a sport coat, leaning into his bride.

The Dalton house, built almost 300 years ago by 12-year-old Trisha Dalton's ancestors, is the setting for the unravelling of Trisha's family under the pressure of cocktail hours that grow ever longer, gambling debts that grow larger, and bonds of love and loyalty that grow weaker.Growing up, Trisha learns the story of Sara Wilde, her "many greats" aunt who lived in the same house when it was new. A suitor had offered Sara's father an important tract of land in exchange for Sara's hand in marriage and Sara's father agreed. But when she refused the suitor, the suitor had her hanged as a witch. Sara's father, instead of coming to her defense, chose the land over his daughter.Now Trisha's father has to recover a big piece of the family land that he lost gambling. He decides to take the family to Atlantic City one Easter so that he can gamble. He is planning on winning a lot of money. He is planning on getting his land back.
Dog People strikes right to the heart of American culture, the dysfunctional family, and the tragedy left in the wake. This book evokes both pity and fear, the elements necessary for true tragedy. Merry McInerney-Whiteford has written an important book, and she has written it masterfully.
Abandoned Electrical
A superbly written and very powerful novel. It left me with much to think about.
Overall, it is a tragic story. The images are so powerful that I would have trouble reading this a second time.
Other books I liked were Drinking: A Love Story by Carolyn Knapp; Manny by Isaac Rosen
It starts slowly and I kept waiting for a plot...but when the plot did finally emerge, it became a powerful story. Overall, very good.
I really wanted to like this book based on Amazon reviews, however I didn't. The pace is slow and painful, the characters are hackneyed and the plot is predictable.
Such a powerful, moving book! I hadn't heard of it (till a friend loaned me her copy several weeks ago) which seems bizarre to me because it's one of the most beautiful, best-written books I've read. Trisha is a true survivor, keeping herself safe in the storm of her parents' raging addictions, never seeming resentful or bitter herself. I loved these girls, Trisha, Frannie, and Cat; and I could see their parents weren't bad people, really, just sick addicts. So the way I see this book, it's a testament to the enormous destructive capability of addiction, and to the equally possiblity of survival and redemption.
