That Muscle Called the Heart: Essays About a Marriage is a collection of creative nonfiction essays of varying lengths and writing styles. Shorter, lyrical pieces recreate moments in history, while longer research-based essays deal thematically with post-9/11 U.S. societal attitudes, pop-culture phenomena, feminism, identity, and interracial marriage. All the essays examine the interconnectedness---as well as the dissonance---of human relationships. They are meant to be read as both simple stories and complicated inquiries into the nature of human generosity and fallibility. Each essay begs the question, what do we learn when we look over a person's shoulder, when her quirks, her inconsistencies, her impulses, and desires become suddenly public?My friends would go running straight out into the hot, bright sun, and then through the sprinklers, into the pool, into the lake ... Those of us who were pale stuck out, and people who stuck out, who were unlike the other kids, were unpopular.
