Liane Moriarty, Truly Madly Guilty
Liane Moriarty, the #1 New York Times bestselling author, will read and sign copies of Truly Madly Guilty—her new novel about how sometimes we don’t appreciate how extraordinary our ordinary lives are until it’s too late.
It's just a normal weekend. Six responsible adults. Three cute kids. One small dog. What could possibly go wrong? In Truly Madly Guilty, Liane Moriarty turns her unique, razor-sharp eye towards three seemingly happy families. Sam and Clementine have a wonderful, albeit, busy life; if there's anything they can count on, it's each other. Clementine and Erika are each other's oldest friends; a single look between them can convey an entire conversation, but theirs is a complicated relationship. When Erika mentions a last-minute invitation to a barbecue with her neighbors, Tiffany and Vid, Clementine and Sam don't hesitate—being around Tiffany and Vid’s larger than life personalities will be a welcome respite. Two months later, it won't stop raining, and Clementine and Sam can't stop asking themselves the question: What if we hadn't gone? In Truly Madly Guilty, Moriarty takes on the foundations of our lives: marriage, sex, parenthood, and friendship. She shows how guilt can expose the fault lines in the most seemingly strong relationships, how what we don't say can be more powerful than what we do, and how sometimes it is the most innocent of moments that can do the greatest harm.
“Moriarty’s fans will rejoice at her latest title as she tackles marriage, parenthood, friendship, and sex, in this provocative and gripping read... This novel sheds light on the truths that we all fear as parents, spouses, and friends. It s perfect for those long summer days, but readers will have to pace themselves to not devour it in one sitting.” —Library Journal (starred review)
