Description

This New York Times best-seller has earned universal acclaim, including starred reviews from Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, Library Journal, and Booklist . With hits like Election and Joe College to his credit, author Tom Perrotta has established himself as a master of satire. Unhappily married Sarah passes her days at the local playground with her three-year-old daughter. When happily unemployed Todd (also married) and Sarah meet, their attraction is immediate. They begin a passionate affair just as their suburban utopia is rattled by the arrival of registered sex offender Ronald James McGorvey. With McGorvey in town, disgusted parents wonder if any of their little children will be safe. Perrotta's wry observations of suburbia make for a tremendously insightful tale. By adding a layer of suspense to his uniquely dark humor, he shapes Little Children into his most compelling novel yet.

Professional reviews

"The path of least resistance becomes just another excuse for characters in search of spiritual solace from the stifling boredom of suburban life. Bestselling satirist Tom Perrotta uses a darker palette than in previous works as he mixes several shaky marriages with stifling summer heat, the crushing routine of child care, and a child molester recently released from jail. The result is an exotic mŽlange of wry humor and heartbreaking pathos. Narrator George Wilson perfectly captures the tone of weary characters whose lives play out in pervert-stalked playgrounds and cookie-cutter houses behind white picket fences. R.O.
