book review: The Abstinence Teacher

Tom Perrotta, author of Little Children and Election, will be doing a Brookline Booksmith reading for his latest, The Abstinence Teacher at Coolidge Corner Theatre on October 16.

I am very much looking forward to this book. About ten years ago, I met with him in Watertown Square for one of those “information interviews.” He is very nice and unassuming. I never got any comments about a piece I had been working on for grad school and would like to turn into a book.
