I'd like to create a table where each 'row' spans multiple rows.

For instance something that renders approximately like this
<table border="1">
<tr><th>Book</th><th>Author</th><th>Pages</th></tr>
<tr><th colspan="3">Description</th></tr>
<tr><td>The Northern Clemency</td><td>Philip Hensher</td><td>608</td></tr>
<tr><td colspan="3">The Northern Clemency begins at the perimeter of a late-summer party, amidst a din of neighbors gossiping one moment and navigating awkward silences the next. But once you encounter the Glover family--in particular, their languidly handsome teenage son Daniel--there's no turning back. The story that follows calls to mind novels by some of our best-loved family chroniclers--John Updike and Jonathan Franzen, to be sure, as well as Ian McEwan and ...
</td></tr>
<tr><td>Hurry Down Sunshine</td><td>Michael Greenberg</td><td>240</td></tr>
<tr><td colspan="3">Michael Greenberg's spare, unflinching memoir begins with a bang: "On July 5, 1996, my daughter was struck mad." Hurry Down Sunshine chronicles the summer when fifteen-year-old Sally experienced her first full-blown manic episode—an event that in a "single stroke" changed her identity and, by extension, that of her entire family. Simply told and beautifully written, Greenberg's memoir shines a stark light on mental ...</td></tr>

Creating a hierarchy for this seems a little overkill.  The data for the '2nd row' of each record is part of the same datarow.  There is no real hierachy.  I just want to spread the data over multiple rows rather than having one really long row.

I didn't see any samples that did anything similar without hierarchies, and didn't see any documentation that looked to promising in this regard.

Is there a simple way to do this?  Or do I have to fake it using hierarchies?
