Mrs. Fletcher by Tom Perrotta (Book Review)

Mrs. FletcherMrs. Fletcher by Tom Perrotta

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Grabbed this from the library’s impulse display; no holds, no waits. This is a new author for me.

Light and amusing but still meaningful treatment of empty-nest syndrome, emerging adulthood, and exploration of sexuality including LGBTQ with heavy focus on the T, life as a MILF, consent, misogyny, porn, hooking up, respect. Really, for all the boxes this book ticks off, it does a good job, even if a couple of the story threads seem to kind of trail off when everything’s wrapped up. I kept hearing “Stacy’s Mom” in my head as I read.

Competently written page-turner; a great airplane read even if I wasn’t on an airplane. Perhaps I’ll grab another Tom Perrotta book for my flight next week.
