Top Ten New York Times Bestseller. Tom Perrotta's exceptional novel perfectly captures the world of stay-at-home mums (and one dad); playground politics; and where a stolen kiss with someone else's husband can lead you. Meet Todd, the handsome house husband, christened 'the Prom King' by the mums in the playground. And Sarah, a lapsed feminist whose copy of "The Handmaid's Tale" lies neglected beneath "The Berenstain Bears Visit the Dentist". And then there's Mary Ann, who is busy scheduling everything, including her sex life (every Tuesday at 9 pm sharp). They all raise their kids in the kind of quiet suburb where nothing ever seems to happen, until one eventful summer when a convicted criminal moves into the neighbourhood and two parents begin an affair that will take them further than they could ever have imagined...
