Product Overview

A chameleon, an enigma, all things to all women--a lifeline to which powerful needs and nameless longings may be attached--Ken Kimble is revealed through the eyes of the women he seduces: Birdie, his first wife, struggling to hold herself together after his desertion; his second wife, Joan, a lonely, tragic heiress who sees her unknowable husband as her last chance for happiness; and Dinah, a beautiful but damaged woman half his age.

From the Publisher
Annotation Ken Kimble is married three times: first, to Southern belle Birdie who becomes an alcoholic when he leaves her, then to a New York Jewish journalist named Joan who dies of cancer, then Dinah, a chef who used to babysit for the children of his first marriage. The details of each marriage, and the fates of each wife, provide the plot of this novel about a man who can't seem to commit.
Editors Note “Beautiful, devastating and complex.” —Chicago Tribune The award-winning debut novel from Jennifer Haigh, author of Baker Towers, The Condition, and Faith, tells the story of Birdie, Joan, and Dinah, three women who marry the same charismatic, predatory, and enigmatic opportunist: Ken Kimble. Resonating with emotional intensity and narrative innovation reminiscent of Ann Patchett’s Bel Canto, Barbara Kingsolver’s The Poisonwood Bible, and Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God, Haigh’s Mrs. Kimble is a timeless story of grief, passion, heartache, deception, and the complex riddle of love.
