Anne, the wife of Hollywood executive Howard Rosenbaum and mother of their seventeen-year-old son, finds herself leading an exclusive book club for the industry elite in a town where “nobody reads.” When a crisis of identity unexpectedly leads Howard back toward the Orthodoxy he left behind, Anne sets out to save what she values above all else, in this freshly comic, emotionally gripping and surprisingly intelligent novel.
