Eight years ago, readers were invited to accompany Maurice Locksley on his rounds, as he paid court to his wife, his ex-wife, and his mistress in dizzying succession. The Marriage Hearse, his account of that wild winter's night, was judged "one of the funniest, smartest, and most generous novels about marriage from a male point of view." (Phyllis Rose, The Nation)

Now, eight years older in The Alibi Breakfast, Locksley is still "laugh-out-loud funny" (Bloomsbury Review) but not nearly so cocky as he contemplates the possibility that his riches are reduced to a single woman-or is it even worse than that? Duberstein's prose is as rich, precise, and allusive as ever; the people in his "house" are as real as the people in your house (terrifying thought), and he weaves the varied strands of plot into a tale of rare depth and integrity.

There will be more soon on Larry Duberstein's extraordinary new novel Five Bullets, forthcoming in November. Mr. Duberstein is the author of 9 previous volumes of fiction, including The Marriage Hearse (New York Times New & Noteworthy), Carnovsky's Retreat (New American Writing Award), The Alibi Breakfast (Publishers Weekly starred notice), The Handsome Sailor (New York Times Notable Book) and The Day The Bozarts Died (BookSense Notable Book).

In his other incarnation as a human being, Larry is the father of three beautiful daughters, an accomplished woodworker and builder, an avid tennis and basketball player, and the person who walks Alice Brownstein, the wonder dog.
