Madeline Hirsch is putting her life back together after a “perfectly dreadful” divorce. When she is contacted about her high school reunion, she finds herself back in touch with a man she hasn’t thought of in years, Kirk. She had an all consuming crush on him back in the day, and by some miracle, he’s also single. They start exchanging e-mails.
You look amazing, Maddie. What’s your middle name? I like knowing someone’s middle name. It adds a new dimension. People are the sum of their names, don’t you think?
I don’t know about that, but I do know that there are certain names I’m just prepared for there to be trouble of some sort.
Oh? Like what?
Kirk for one. Men named Kirk are anarchists, trouble makers and certain to cause World War III.
