The Odds by Stewart O’Nan

This little gem of a book (only 179 pages) will make you laugh and weep and wonder what the odds are that a couple married 30 years who are on the verge of financial bankrupcy nad divorce can actually salvage anything. Art certainly thinks they can beat the odds so he takes the rest of their life savings, books them into the honeymoon suite of a swanky hotel/casino in Niagara Falls and proceeds to win his wife back.
