About the Book

Divorces are fascinating—unless they’re yours. This is the story of one divorce, told by one of its participants, who discovers that divorce is truly the art of losing, an art, as it turns out, that no one masters or even handles very well. Experience the death of Jimmy’s marriage, told against the backdrop of crime and obsession, as narrated in this quietly compelling novel.
