SINGLE, CAREFREE, MELLOW: Beat your Valentine's Day Blues with Katherine Heiney and Sari Botton

Abandon your hallmark notions of the holiday and get out of the monogamous mindset! Come celebrate Katherine Heiney's refreshingly frank, electrically witty, and frequently poignant debut short story collection, SINGLE, CAREFREE, MELLOW--about awkward crushes, ill-advised lovers, and the joys of infidelity--which "gives women's interior lives the gravity they so richly deserve" (Lena Dunham). With Sari Botton, essayist, journalist, and editor of the award-winning anthologyGoodbye to All That: Writers on Loving and Leaving New York and its follow-up Never Can Say Goodbye: Writers on Their Unshakable Love for New York. Editor Jenny Jackson writes: “Katherine Heiny burst onto the literary scene in 1992 when the first story she had ever written – ‘How to Give the Wrong Impression’ – was published in The New Yorker. It was celebrated, anthologized, taught in college classrooms, optioned for film and performed off-Broadway. And then… nothing. Twenty-two years passed between that first story and this moment and book: Single, Carefree, Mellow....These eleven stories fulfill that promise made twenty-two years ago, and wow, they were worth the wait.”
