Blindsided by her mother's sudden death and wrecked by a recent love affair, 31-year-old Casey Peabody has arrived in Massachusetts in the summer of 1997 without a plan. In this novel by the author of the National Book Critics Circle finalist Euphoria, Casey is a former child golf prodigy who now waits tables in Harvard Square, and rents a tiny room at the side of a garage where she works on the novel she's been writing for six years. When she falls for two very different men at the same time, Casey's fight to fulfill her creative ambitions and balance the conflicting demands of art and life is challenged in ways that push her to the brink.
"Wonderful, witty, heartfelt…. A novel about grief … bold enough and fearless enough to imagine the possibility of unbounded happiness." —Washington Post
