‘You May Want to Marry my Husband’ by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

A very fine and beloved author died too young yesterday of ovarian cancer. She loved the pleasures of everyday life evident in her writing (Encyclopedia of Ordinary Things). She had a magnificent sense of humour evident even in her children’s books (Little Pea). Ten days before she died she wrote a dating advertisement for her husband of 26 years in The New York Times entitled:

You May Want to Marry My Husband

The piece reflects her generous spirit and her affinity for bringing people together. It is heartbreaking but you won’t want to miss it. Read it and hug someone near and dear to you after you do.
