The 158-Pound Marriage

(1974)
A novel by

 
 
Severin Winter is not a man to take things lightly. His loving, like his wrestling, is decidedly heavyweight...a fact not lost on Utch, a lovely Viennese lady whose husband is rather taken (literally) by the delicate Edith, Severin's underweight wife.

A bizarre menage a quatre is the result of these convoluted desires as Irving blends farce and tragedy in another bubbling, brilliant novel.
