"Waiting On" Wednesday: Perfect Life


This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Perfect Life
By Jessica Shattuck
Publication Date: August 3

From Amazon:

"Two years ago, Neil Banks walked into a bathroom in the Pacific Fertility Center to provide his former college girlfriend, Jenny Callahan, with the biological material needed to conceive a child. Becoming a father was not part of the deal: adrift in his postmodern Los Angeles lifestyle, he signed away all paternity rights. But on the day of the baby’s christening, Neil turns up at the church. His unexpected—and unauthorized—return to Jenny’s privileged East Coast world sends a shockwave through the families of Jenny and her two college roommates—and sets off this deeply funny and keenly observed novel about fertility, love, and American excess."

What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

This looks really good. I have been trying to stay away from the catalogs and upcoming books lately because I need to get a hold of what I have.
