Description
This 13th novel from Stewart O'Nan is another wildly original, bittersweet gem like Last Night at the Lobster. On Valentine's weekend, Art and Marion Fowler flee their Cleveland suburb for Niagara Falls. Jobless, with their home approaching foreclosure and their marriage on the brink of collapse, Art and Marion liquidate their savings account and book a bridal suite at the region's ritziest casino for a second honeymoon. While they sightsee like tourists during the day, at night they risk it all at the roulette wheel to fix their finances and save their marriage.

"Haunting, funny, and gorgeously eloquent.... O'Nan's expertly drawn tension builds to a conclusion that's as surprising and satisfying as an unexpected kiss. In the end, The Odds is a gorgeous fable, a stunning meditation, and a hope-filled Valentine about what is won in love, what falls away, and how truly, it is always, always worth the cost."Boston Globe
