About the author:
Neil Connelly talked his way into the MFA Program at McNeese State University, where he studied with Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Olen Butler alongside future Pulitzer Prize winner Adam Johnson. He was out of his league from day one. After graduation and a stint at Cape Fear Community College, he returned to McNeese as a professor and eventually became director of the graduate program. These days he teaches writing at Shippensburg University in his home state of Pennsylvania, where he lives with his wife, their two sons, and a dog named Muffin. In the Wake of Our Vows is his sixth book, following novels with Arthur A. Levine, LSU Press, and Simon & Schuster.

In the Wake of Our Vows


Authored by Neil Connelly

Set years after tossed bouquets and tiered wedding cakes, these stories explore happy marriages, broken marriages, and those still hanging in the balance. A husband fleeing his wife finds refuge in a radio station's promotional stunt; a cuckold seeks solace by assuming the identity of the man who ruined his life; a divorced wedding photographer struggles to break free of her obsession with taking obscene pictures; on the night of Jewish atonement, a wife responds to her husband's adultery with a dangerous act of her own. All these characters and others in the collection declared the same vows, to have and to hold. Yet each takes a unique approach to coping with the inevitable difference all couples confront-between the world we live in and the world which we were promised.
