Abbreviating Ernie

(1997)
A novel by

 
 
When Dr. Ernest Haas, a cross-dressing Schenectady, New York, urologist, slips into a size-8 beige knit dress, handcuffs his Prozac-addicted wife, Audrey, to their stove, and expires in the act of making love to her, it creates serious problems for everyone. Especially Audrey. Does she go down with the ship? Or doe she resort to her electric multi-purpose carving utensil to sever her ties with her late husband? So begins Abbreviating Ernie, a novel about the most sensational domestic violence case in the history of upstate New York. The political correctness of spousal dismemberment polarizes women and anti-vivisectionalists alike. And Audrey's trial becomes and international cause celebre exploited by everyone from feminists to forensic urologists.
