Single, Carefree, Mellow by Katherine Heiny

"Katherine Heiny is funny.  Like, really funny.  I know this and you'll know this if you read this book.  She starts Single, Carefree, Mellow by saying "You could sum it up this way: Maya's dog was dying, and she was planning to leave her boyfriend of five years." This book is composed of hilarious short stories that follow love affair after love affair.  You will not want to put this books down, and you will feel disappointment when it's over.  A must read for the book lovers that are drawn to the eccentric and witty."  - Recommended by Jess
