I Saw a Man Hit His Wife

Collected short stories by Mark Greenside

"This brave and entirely original collection of stories completely captures the modern whirl of men and women caught in love's complexities. In showing the comedy and tragedy of the heart, Mark Greenside is a Raymond Carver or Bernard Malamud for the nineties."

-—Tom Jenks, Co-Editor of Narrative Magazine

"[Mark Greenside] catches the politics of certain man-woman connections brilliantly. He gets in the shoes of the lover and the beloved, of the pursuer and the prey, of the erotically charged and the turned off, and the view is exact and convincing, often funny, sometimes unsettling."

—Leo E. Litwak, First Prize winner of the O’Henry Prize Stories
