Doug Parker is a widower at age twenty-nine, and in his quiet suburban town, that makes him something of a celebrity the object of sympathy, curiosity, and, in some cases, unbridled desire. But Doug has other things on his mind. First there s his sixteen-year-old stepson, Russ: a once-sweet kid who now is getting into increasingly serious trouble on a daily basis. Then there are Doug s sisters: his bossy twin, Claire, who s just left her husband and moved in with Doug, determined to rouse him from his grieving stupor. And Debbie, who s engaged to Doug s ex-best friend and maniacally determined to pull off the perfect wedding at any cost. Soon Doug s entire nuclear family is in his face. And when he starts dipping his toes into the shark-infested waters of the second-time-around dating scene, it isn t long before his new life is spinning hopelessly out of control, cutting a harrowing and often hilarious swath of sexual missteps and escalating chaos across the suburban landscape. Funny, sexy, and smart, How to Talk to a Widower is a novel about finding your way, even when you have no idea where it is you want to go."
