Tom Perrotta

Co-presented with THE SEATTLE PUBLIC LIBRARY.

A fun, spirited evening should be in store here as Tom Perrotta, author of the popular novels, Little Children and The Leftovers, is here with another light-hearted tale, Mrs. Fletcher (Simon & Schuster).

“Divorced since her husband decamped years ago, 46-year-old Eve Fletcher is bereft when her son, Brendan, whom she has helicopter-parented, goes off to college. Receiving a shocking anonymous email—“U r my MILF! Send me a naked pic!!”—reawakens her sexual fantasies … Perrotta covers the gamut of sexual issues in this made-for-TV comedy of errors ... Every character here exists in a state of sexual arousal, and the happy ending finds each of them in a satisfying relationship.”  —Publishers Weekly.

“Perrotta’s eye for contemporary mores and social details remains razor-sharp; his portraits of the substantial supporting cast are equally keen and tempered with compassion. There are no bad guys here, just fallible human beings trying to grab some happiness. The deliberately inconclusive conclusion points Eve and Brendan toward that goal but doesn’t promise they’ll get there.”— Kirkus Reviews.
