An Idiot in Marriage A Novel By David Jester
Kieran McCall's youth was a series of misguided attempts at love—a succession of sexual failures that always ended in disaster but somehow led to something worthwhile. As an adult, his failures looked like they were behind him. He married the love of his life and they had a child together, but chaos was never far away.

An Idiot in Marriage follows Kieran McCall as he learns to live with the strains of married life and parenthood, from dealing with incompetent babysitters and dirty diapers to neighbors from hell, stray ducks, and a best friend who still thinks with his dick.

Kieran McCall grew up, but he never matured and he never changed. He's still a little immature, he's still a little naïve, and he's still massively incompetent. Kieran may be older, but he's definitely not wiser. And if he doesn't shape up, he may risk losing it all.

“[Idiot in Marriage] delivers dozens of laughs with a few cleverly disguised moments of thoughtfulness mixed in . . . The autobiographical style lends itself well to full immersion in the laugh-out-loud situations encountered by Kieran and those unfortunate enough to love him . . . delightfully biting, tongue-in-cheek British sensibility.”—Publishers Weekly

Praise for An Idiot In Love

“If you’ve ever loved, been loved, yearned for love, fantasized about love, or been arrested for love, you will love this highly entertaining book.” —Mark Miller, author of 500 Dates: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the Online Dating Wars

“Raw, raunchy, laugh-out-loud funny, and surprisingly affecting, An Idiot in Love is a deeply relatable page-turner. The honesty, candor, and humor of David Jester’s prose is something to be admired and enjoyed. I loved this book!” —Davy Rothbart, author of My Heart is an Idiot and creator of FOUND Magazine

"Jester's latest novel guffaws through a lifetime of learning the language—and pain—of the heart. Kieran's searching for, and stumbling across, and then losing his one true love is a story any hopeless, or hopeful, romantic can empathize with and enjoy." —North East Lifestyle
