In It Had to Be You, we follow the precarious, at times joyful, always mesmerizing tightrope walk of their marriage, which goes from high wit and passion to severe melancholy, and finally to estrangement.Very smart, very savvy, and frightfully modern in the way she navigates us through the sexual labyrinth of our time, Ms.

Malouf writes with wild freedom and hard edge all at once. This novel emanates a kind of wry, anxious, erotic heat.--Howard NormanMelissa Malouf writes almost literally from her intelligence. She has all the other gifts and qualities of an elegant writer- but what is ultimately so haunting and finally so winning about her fiction is the beautifully concealed presence within it of a genuine rarity--a powerful mind always thinking its way through imaginary lives with a hungry curiosity, a passion for sympathy, a tolerant wit, and a guarantee to reward the readers investment of time and care.--Reynolds PriceIt Had to Be You is remarkable for its drop-dead irony punctuated by moments of poetic insight.--Publishers WeeklyMarch 3, 1997It Had to Be You is a grown-up story about a marriage not made anywhere within the vicinity of Heaven.
