Set in 1960, An Actual Life resurrects two characters from Thomas' highly acclaimed collection of short stories, Getting Over Tom. A year after they "have" to get married, Buddy and Virginia and their baby Madeline are struggling to make ends meet, living in Aunt Dot's tiny house in New Jersey. There's no money, no love, no forseeable future, and neither Buddy nor Virginia has a clue about how to make their misbegotten marriage work.
