Set in Philadelphia and its immediate suburbs, Public Displays of Affectation explores the intricacies of the human heart and the complex emotions that bind us together even as they threaten to tear us apart.

Praise for Public Displays of Affectation:

Haurin's skillful use of language in this collection of stories makes familiar subjects--new love, old love, faithful and unfaithful love--seem vivid, strange, and exciting. This is a book I genuinely enjoyed reading.  

                    - Liz Moore, author of The Words of Every Song and Heft

With a keen eye for the telling detail and a well-tuned ear for dialogue, Shaun Haurin explores the myriad shades of gray that shroud and haunt the contemporary heart. A compelling and emotionally intelligent collection.

                    - Marc Schuster, author of The Grievers
