Stephen McCauley is the author of six previous novels, including <i><b>The Object of My Affection, True Enough</b>,</i> and <b><i>Alternatives to Sex</i>.</b> Many have been national bestsellers, and three have been made into feature films. <i>The New York Times Book Review</i> dubbed McCauley "the secret love child of Edith Wharton and Woody Allen", and he was named a Chevalier in the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Ministry of Culture. His fiction, reviews, and articles have appeared in the <i>New York Times, the Washington Post, Harper</i><i>'s</i><i>, Vogue</i>, and many other publications. He currently serves as Co-Director of Creative Writing at Brandeis University. He has several properties listed on Airbnb in Massachusetts and New York and owns a total of zero toss pillows. Home is where your ex is... David Hedges's life is coming apart at the seams. His job helping San Francisco rich kids get into the colleges of their choice is exasperating; his younger boyfriend has left him; and the beloved carriage house he rents is being sold.

The last person he expects to hear from is Julie Fiske. He's relieved to hear she's recovered from her brief, misguided first marriage. To him.

Julie definitely doesn't have a problem with marijuana and the Airbnb she's running out of her house is neither shabby nor illegal. And she has two whole months to come up with the money to buy said house from her second husband before their divorce is finalised.

She'd just like David's help organising college plans for her 17-year-old daughter.

When he flies east, David and Julie pick up exactly where they left off thirty years ago - they're still best friends who can finish each other's sentences. But there's one broken bit between them that no amount of home renovations will fix.
