Publication, Publisher or Distributor
Divorce Dog is a humorous meditation on love, sex and life by a writer who has straddled every line she's come across. McLarin is a child of the south sent north as a teen, a race-conscious black woman dating across the color line, a grumpy believer and a loving mother very skeptical about motherhood. In this collection of connected, personal essays, McLarin takes on the pain of divorce, the evolving meaning of race, the embarrassment of mid-life dating and the maddening possibility of love with insight, humor and grace.
