Mrs. Fletcher by Tom Perrotta
Her first book club pick is Mrs. Fletcher by Tom Perrotta, the bestselling author of Little Children and The Leftovers. His latest novel tells the story of a new empty-nester who becomes obsessed with an “adult” website, and finds her sleepy, suburban existence sleepy no more. Before long, Eve’s online fixations begin to spill over into real life, revealing new romantic possibilities that threaten to upend her quiet suburban existence.
Meanwhile, miles away at the state college, Eve’s son Brendan discovers that life on campus isn’t quite what he’d imagined. As the New England autumn turns cold, both mother and son find themselves enmeshed in morally fraught situations that come to a head on one fateful November night.
