Description

“Deftly crafted” (New York Review of Books), with its collection of lusty, lazy, hard-drinking characters, Always Happy Hour showcases transcendent contemporary talent at its best.

Mary Miller combines hard-edged prose and savage Southern charm. Claustrophobic and lonesome, acerbic and magnetic, the women in Always Happy Hour seek understanding in the most unlikely places—a dilapidated foster home where love is a liability and the empty corners of a dream home bought after a bitter divorce. Miller evokes the particular gritty comfort found in bad habits as hope turns to dust.

Reviews

“...enjoyable... a meditation on the stories a person tells herself.” — The New York Times Book Review

“...a tipsy glow surrounds [Miller’s] Southern women as they [nurse] an inner ache they can’t booze away. In lucid, vivid prose, Miller renders them alive to lust and, however improbably, to love.” — O, The Oprah Magazine
