"Acerbic and ruefully funny, Always Happy Hour weaves tales of young womendeeply flawed and intensely realwho struggle to get out of their own way. They love to drink and have sex; they make bad decisions with men who either love them too much or too little; and they haunt a Southern terrain of gas stations, public pools, and dive bars. Though each character shoulders the weight of her own baggagewhether its a string of horrible exes, a boyfriend with an annoying child, or an inability to be genuinely happy for a best friendthey are united in their unrelenting suspicion that they deserve better. These women seek understanding in the most unlikely places: a dilapidated foster home where love is a liability in "Big Bad Love," a trailer park littered with a string of bad decisions in "Uphill," and the unfamiliar corners of a dream home purchased with the winnings of a bitter divorce settlement in "Charts." Taking a microscope to delicate patterns of love and intimacy, Miller evokes the reticent love among the misunderstood, the gritty comfort in bad habits that cant be broken, and the beat-by-beat minutiae of fated relationships."--Amazon.com
