Divorce Dog is a humorous meditation on love, sex and life by a writer who has straddled every line she's come across. McLarin is a child of the south sent north as a teen, a race-conscious black woman dating across the color line, a grumpy believer and a loving mother very skeptical about motherhood. In this collection of connected, personal essays, McLarin takes on the pain of divorce, the evolving meaning of race, the embarrassment of mid-life dating and the maddening possibility of love with insight, humor and grace.

This memoir was very insightful, raw, and dynamic! I enjoyed learning more about Kim McLarin and her struggles. The struggle is REAL for all of us so I applaud those courageous souls who give us a glimpse of their joy and pain. Kim is one of my favorite authors. LOVED her book "Jump at the Sun." The only thing that makes me not give this book a 5 star rating is the several errors (grammar, misspellings, omissions, inconsistencies) throughout the book. However, no author is perfect and a few errors are tolerable...several becomes frustrating. Yet, I'm always captivated by the way this author walks in her truth and unleashes it on the pages of her books.
