“This book is like life: sometimes funny, touching, sad, uplifting, and messy. More character-driven than plot-heavy, it’s for readers who appreciate stories that look back at high school and leaving home, through adult eyes.” ―Library Journal
“With a mix of heartfelt tearjerkers, soaring ballads, and stuff that just plain rocks, Darling at the Campsite is like a great album that you go back to again and again. Andy Abramowitz writes with talent, humor, and a sneaky kind of wisdom that sticks with you long after you’ve turned the last page.” ―Matthew Norman, author of Last Couple Standing and All Together Now
“Who would’ve thought a book about a funeral could be this funny and hopeful? Abramowitz tells the story of two brothers―one recently drowned, one alive but floundering―with the perfect balance of levity and earnestness. Full of surprises, endearing characters, and Talking Heads references, Darling at the Campsite is part homegoing story, part family drama, and part music nerdfest. Garden State meets High Fidelity, set in the present day. I could not put it down.” ―Suzy Krause, author of Sorry I Missed You
“Darling at the Campsite is a funny, warm, offbeat treasure about the families we don’t choose, and the search for identity. Abramowitz’s characters walk off the page.” ―Jonathan Evison, New York Times bestselling author of Legends of the North Cascades
“Reminiscent of the best of Jonathan Tropper and Mathew Norman, Darling at the Campsite is a deep dive into heartbreak through the funny and wise eyes of author Andy Abramowitz. What starts out as a story of one guy’s loss of a high school love turns into a fertile and relatable tale about the lengths we go to protect ourselves from future pain―and end up finding our truer selves instead. I was envious all the way through and wished I’d written this wonderful book.” ―Ann Garvin, USA Today bestselling author of I Thought You Said This Would Work
