Jane easily falls in love with Duncan: he's charming, good-natured, and handsome. He has also slept with nearly every woman in Boyne City, Michigan.

Jane sees Duncan's old girlfriends everywhere - at restaurants, at the grocery store, even three towns away. While she may be able to come to terms with dating the world's most prolific seducer of women, she wishes she didn't have to share him quite so widely. His ex-wife, Aggie, still has Duncan mow her lawn. And his coworker Jimmy comes and goes from Duncan's apartment at the most inopportune times. Jane wonders how the relationship is supposed to work with all these people in it. But any notion Jane has of love and marriage changes with one tragic accident. Now her life is permanently intertwined with Duncan's, Aggie's, and Jimmy's, and she knows she will never have Duncan to herself. But is it possible that a deeper kind of happiness is right in front of her eyes?

A novel that is alternately bittersweet and laugh-out-loud funny, Early Morning Riser is Katherine Heiny's most astonishingly wonderful work to date.

Reviews

  1. Scorpio Books

    “I couldn’t resist being drawn into the rhythms of the relatively unremarkable but unrelenting lives of Jane and Duncan in small town Michigan. Heiny is so brilliant at capturing the gentle drama, tendernesses and joy of people loving and failing each other; of friendships (solicited or otherwise) becoming family bonds. Her keen sense of the absurd and eye for hilarious detail keep it from becoming too saccharine. It’s deliciously sweet.” Harriet @ Scorpio Books
