Top ten marriage tales

Dan Rhodes has written eight books, including the newly released Marry Me. In 2010 he won the E.M. Forster Award. One of his top ten books for Valentine's Day reading, as told to the Guardian:
Grifter's Game by Lawrence Block

This includes a beautifully bleak drug-addled ceremony in Las Vegas, but to be honest I'm mainly including it because it was the first book in the Hard Case Crime series, which is just about the best bit of publishing there has ever been – hardboiled suspense fiction old and new in glorious paperbacks. It's hard to read anything else these days.
