A funny and observant story collection that captures the complexity of human relationships
In this smart and original story collection, Heidi Jon Schmidt paints her subjects with delicate care. What emerges are characters who are both flawed and lovable—flighty women married to unbearably academic men; a diligent psychotherapy patient obsessed with her middle-aged narcissistic dump of a therapist; a gaggle of talentless writers too concerned with marketing strategy to put words on paper. Sparkling with keen wit and sharp insight, Darling? marks the return of an extremely gifted writer.

Praise for Darling?

“Here is that rare and welcome book about love that's less concerned with how we find love than what we do with it, a book that deals not in moments of passion, but in moments of grace, a book about the frustrating, hilarious, embarrassing, transcendental business of living with love. Heidi Jon Schmidt's stories are filled with delightful wit, spell-binding feeling, and an emotional intelligence that rises to the level of essential wisdom.” —Peter Ho Davies, author of Equal Love and The Ugliest House in the World
