"Audra Daltry is a singular creation--a character so funny, so appealing, so sure that she can change the world for her family that she will jump right off the page and take up permanent residence in your heart. Standard Deviation is a marvel." --Kate Atkinson, author of Life After Life
"A book so funny and perceptive I want to be friends with its author." --Laline Paull, author of The Bees
"I have been a fan of Katherine Heiny's writing for years but my adoration of her reaches a new apex with this, her first novel, Standard Deviation. It's an irresistibly charming novel about age-old institutions: marriage and parenting. But Heiny's brilliantly drawn characters and her keen insights make both topics feel brand new. A delightful, refreshing novel that illuminates the world of complicated relationships." --Elin Hilderbrand, author of Here's to Us
"In her debut novel, the author of the charming short story collection Single, Carefree, Mellow matures into new (equally beguiling) terrain, exploring marriage, fidelity, friendship, and parenting... Wonderful... Reading as delicious as the meals Graham is forever called into service to cook... To spend 300-plus pages with Heiny's wry voice and colorful cast of characters is to love them, truly. An amusingly engaging take on long-term marriage with a lovably loopy character at its center." --Kirkus (Starred Review)
"Standard Deviation is a winning effort that smartly examines the ties that bind in even the most unlikely of marriages. . . Heiny's gift for quick-witted dialogue displays the skill of an observational comic. . . Provides a consistent flow of humor. With its assortment of quirky characters who stumble through life even as, to all outward appearances, many of them should have it mastered, Standard Deviation bears a certain resemblance to the work of Anne Tyler." --Shelf Awareness
"Both heart-piercing and, crucially, very funny." --Louise Erdrich, The New York Times
KATHERINE HEINY is the author of Single, Carefree Mellow, a collection of short stories. Her fiction has been published in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Ploughshares, Glimmer Train, and many other places. She lives in Washington, D.C., with her husband and children.
