"I drink, I hurt myself and the people around me, and then I write."
Brett is in Central America, away from her husband, when she begins a love affair with his friend, Eduard. Tragedy and comedy are properly joined at the hip in this loosely autobiographical book about infidelity, drinking, and the postponing of repercussions under the sun. Though coming undone is something we all try to avoid, Martin reminds us that going off the rails is sometimes a part of the ride.

"Laugh-aloud funny...painfully honest." (The New York Times)
"I loved this novel. It's dark and sexy and unrepentant. The story of a relapsed alcoholic having an affair. No more and no less. Brett is a flinty character. The narrative voice is spectacular." (Roxane Gay, author of Bad Feminist)
"[Martin] wants to question our assumptions, and his own, about what love means, how it operates, the demands of living for other people and living for ourselves." (LA Times)
