New Canaan 53

Tom Perrot ta is “The descendant of such chroniclers of small-town America as Thornton Wilder , John O’Hara , and Willa Cather .”— The New York Times Nine Inches “ Brims with such secrets …. Perrotta fixates on small-town types whose complex quirks make them not extraordinary or noble but average; what is extraordinary is Perrotta’s empathic insight into how his characters cope—or, short of that, forget.” — Elle

Tom Perrotta delivers his first true collection, featuring ten stories— some sharp and funny, some mordant and surprising, and a few intense and disturbing. Perrotta writes with a sure sense of his characters and their secret longings.
