Coming in 2018: Divorce, Dog Style by Maria Flook

Maria FlookA beleaguered womanizer, Grafton, attempts to win back an old girlfriend, Caroline, whose son has recently died in a wind turbine accident.  Yet there are other men and ex-lovers in line before him, including a veterinarian who is coming to her house to put down Caroline’s dog with the “two-injection method.”  Caroline plans to commemorate the event with a formal dinner party, which features a cast of volatile guests, some invited, some not.  The novel takes place in one day.  Flook’s iconic blend of black comedy, biting wisdom, and characteristic lyricism explores the raw sanctuaries where women and men connect and disconnect.
