From the writer People magazine called “fiercely acerbic” and “compelling” comes a hilarious and touching meditation on what it means to be not-so-young, neurotically-gifted and definitely black while searching for love and meaning in contemporary America. In this heartfelt collection McLarin takes on the pain of divorce, the embarrassment of mid-life dating and the maddening possibility of love with insight, humor and grace.

“From the first word to the last, Kim McLarin lays it on the line. The personality that emerges in these pages is that of a woman who’s seen a lot and been surprised by very little and never lost sight of the things that matter most.” 

-Steve Yarbrough, author of The End of California and Safe from the Neighbors.

“Brutally honest, witty and hilarious, Divorce Dog is a revelation. I loved it.”

-Bernice McFadden, author of Gathering of Waters
