Karen Connelly, Tom Perrotta
Moderator: Jen Sookfong Lee
Two authors who don’t shy away from the risqué and oftentimes taboo subject of sex talk about why this vexing part of human nature is integral to their writing. Of her new novel, The Change Room, in which a middle-aged heterosexual woman begins a steamy affair with a women she meets at her community pool, Karen Connelly says she’s never had so much fun writing a book in her life—and this is her twelfth. In Mrs. Fletcher, Tom Perrotta—widely known for his novel Little Children about adults behaving badly in suburbia—introduces us to Eve Fletcher, a 46-year-old divorcéee who can’t curtail her interest in a porn website called MILFateria.com after receiving an anonymous text: “U R my MILF.” With sex come laughs and truths about all of us. You won’t want to miss this affair.
