For the commitment-averse women in these eleven sublime laugh-out-loud stories, falling in love is never easy and always inconvenient. 

Single, Carefree, Mellow is a lot like the women who populate it: smart and sexy and a little bit ruthless.” —Entertainment Weekly

“Something like Cheever mixed with Ephron.” —The New York Times Book Review

Maya is in love with both her boyfriend and her boss. Sadie’s lover calls her as he drives to meet his wife at marriage counseling. Nina is more worried that the Presbyterian minister living above her garage will hear her kids swearing than that he will find out she’s sleeping with her running partner. 

The women grapple with love amidst everything from unwelcome houseguests to disastrous birthday parties as Katherine Heiny spins a debut that is superbly accomplished and endlessly entertaining.

Katherine Heiny's fiction has been published in The New YorkerPloughshares, Narrative,Glimmer Train, and many other places. She lives in Washington, D.C., with her husband and children. Single, Carefree, Mellow is her first book.
