Publisher's Synopsis

'Michael Deagler is the real deal . . . This is a truly intelligent work from a clearly intelligent writer' PERCIVAL EVERETT

'Illuminating and moving' AIMEE BENDER

Dennis Monk is about to spend his first summer sober. At twenty-six he is ready to re-join sensible adult life, but just when Dennis needs stability, his uptight parents kick him out into a world of couch-surfing.

Everything around him has changed and everyone he knows seems to be doing better than he is. At every street corner, former classmates, estranged drinking buddies, and prospective lovers threaten to burst the bubble of his recovery. And Dennis Monk is about to learn the difference between getting sober and staying sober in this new world.

Early Sobrieties is a devastatingly witty novel about coming of age a second time. Deagler's debut marks the arrival of an astonishing new voice in American fiction.
