Heiny, a funny, bittersweet observer of modern families,
discusses her latest bestselling novel with Kate Tuttle of The Boston Globe.
A New York Times bestseller. This hilarious novel about modern love and life will surprise you with its warm-hearted ending. "When you enter a relationship with a man who has had relations with, well, half the town, things will probably get weird. Jane, the star of Heiny’s offbeat and funny new novel, falls for Duncan — who comes with an oversize load of small-town baggage. The story...sparkles with Heiny’s trademark witticisms and cutting observations.”—Washington Post
