A gorgeously written, sharp debut novel about three middle-aged couples who find themselves unmoored in the prime of their lives Three couples in San Diego—best friends, empty nesters living the California dream—have reached a tipping point. With the blurry years of child rearing and corporate ladder-climbing over, each pair is finally free to enjoy the golden years together. Until two of the husbands suddenly announce they want a divorce.

As marriages and friendships unravel and the prosperity of the last few decades spins toward financial meltdown, Adele, Maggie and Sylvia find their carefully established footholds and expectations crumbling.

Denting the Bosch marks the debut of a talented new voice, and offers an alternatively hilarious and devastating assessment of modern life, marriage, middle age, friendship, money, sex and the American Dream.
