"Waiting On" Wednesday: Motherland


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

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

Motherland
By Amy Sohn
Publication Date: August 14

From Amazon:

It’s just before Labor Day and five mothers and fathers in Cape Cod, Park Slope, and Greenwich Village find themselves adrift professionally and personally. Rebecca Rose, whose husband has been acting aloof, is tempted by the attentions of a former celebrity flame; Marco Goldstein, saddled with two kids as his husband Todd goes on a business trip, turns to sex with strangers for comfort; Danny Gottlieb, a screenwriter on the cusp of a big break, leaves his wife and children to pitch a film (and meet young women) in Los Angeles; fallen sanctimommy Karen Bryan Shapiro, devastated by her husband’s infidelity and abandonment, attempts a fresh start with a hot single dad; and former A-List movie star Melora Leigh plots a star turn on Broadway to revive her Hollywood career. As their stories intersect in surprising ways and their deceptions spiral out of control, they begin to question their beliefs about family, happiness, and themselves. 


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

This one sounds pretty good, but I'm not a fan of books with too many different characters and their separate stories. Thanks for bringing it to our attention though.

Sounds like a great read! Better read it quick b/c it sounds like a movie waiting to be made, though :) I smell Mike Nichols all over that one :(

Thanks for always hosting!!!
