Jay Got Married is not just the name of the book but the lead essay in the book and a statement on love and marriage in the year 2019. I have always been intrigued with the pomp and ceremony of marriage.
I combine this essay with eight others of different subjects with a humorous sometimes somber mood. Essays seem to be the best way of conveying my message; like short vignettes, they afford me the opportunity to express my opinion on different subjects without having to worry about sticking to one major theme.
