For readers of Lorrie Moore and Mary Gaitskill, Love Like That is a collection of joyfully subversive and moving stories about brilliant, broken women that are just the right amount wrong

Whether diving into complicated relationships or wrestling with family ties, the girls and women who populate this collection—misfits and misanthropes, bickering sisters, responsible daughters, and unhappy wives—don't always find themselves making the best decisions. A woman struggles with a new kind of love triangle when she moves in with a divorced dad. A lonely teenage beach attendant finds uneasy comradeship with her boss. A high school English teacher gets pushed to her limits when a student plagiarizes. Often caught between desire and duty, guilt and resentment, these characters discover what it means to get lost in love, and do what it takes to find themselves again. Utterly singular and wholly unforgettable, Duffy-Comparone's stories manage to be slyly, wickedly funny at even their darkest turns and herald the arrival of an exciting new voice in fiction.
