Product Details


“In [Matthew] Norman’s funny and heartwarming novel . . . a Baltimore couple tries to head off the demise of their marriage with an unusual arrangement. . . . Norman skillfully uses his gift for gentle humor to prod at the foibles and joys of marriage, parenthood, and love in this endearing charmer.”Publishers Weekly

“Norman writes characters that are so relatable, you feel like they are people you know. His dialogue seems like he has eavesdropped on people at the table next to him in a restaurant. He had me laughing out loud . . . and then in the next paragraph you feel sorry for the characters. Last Couple Standing is a cautionary tale for married adults, where you find that the grass isn’t always greener.”—The Citizen (Auburn, N.Y.)

“This warm and witty tale of a devoted couple willing to throw out that pesky ‘forsaking all others’ rule in order to stay together crackles with fierce energy and emotional truth.”—Judy Blundell, New York Times bestselling author of The High Season

“Nothing is left off the table in Matthew Norman’s Last Couple Standing, an equal-parts funny and heart-pinging novel that will be achingly relatable to both the married and the divorced—or to anyone who’s ever contemplated being either. Norman’s trademark humor and wit make this a page-turner you’ll want to read with your funniest friend, then discuss over a couple of stiff martinis.”—Sarah Jio, New York Times bestselling author of All the Flowers in Paris 

“Only Matthew Norman can make divorce fun and funny. I smiled straight through this book, enjoying every fumbling sexual encounter, every tormented marriage, every strange neighbor. In the end, as with all of Norman’s books, there’s loads of heart and tenderness peeking out from behind the great comic writing.”—Jessica Anya Blau, author of The Trouble with Lexie 

“The funniest book I’ve read in a long time. In Last Couple Standing, Matthew Norman has written a heartfelt, perceptive, and thoroughly entertaining novel.”—Richard Roper, author of How Not to Die Alone
