A winsome novel-as-memoir about what happens to a young teacher left by her boyfriend to her own devices

Annie Harper is a twenty-four-year-old elementary school teacher when her soldier-boyfriend, David, is sent overseas. Determined to record her desolate and devoted hours, she begins a memoir that she imagines will be a tender homage to "all the women at home." Instead, Annie misses David but finds herself. Told through Annie's memoir-in- progress, Long Division vividly renders the inner life of a quirky young woman stuck between what she really feels and what she thinks she should.

Readers of Curtis Sittenfeld and Marisa de los Santos—as well as the many real-life women left awaiting a soldier's return—will be captivated by Jane Berentson's quirky and wonderfully refreshing debut novel.
