    Tom Perrotta's thirtysomething parents of young children are a varied and surprising bunch. There's Todd, the handsome stay-at-home dad dubbed "The Prom King" by the moms of the playground; Sarah, a lapsed feminist with a bisexual past, who seems to have stumbled into a traditional marriage; Richard, Sarah's husband, who has found himself more and more involved with a fantasy life on the Internet than with the flesh and blood in his own house; and Mary Ann, who thinks she has it all figured out.

    What did you love best about Little Children?

    Little Children manages to make you feel sorry for its characters without ever particularly rooting for any of them. Perrotta's prose somehow manages to be sympathetic and sarcastic at the same time. His words are consistently fresh, but his ensemble cast often flirts with the suburban cliches they're trying to avoid. Perhaps that's the point. I found the story entertaining from beginning to end, although the narrative arch of the romance was fairly predictable. I thought the narration by George Wilson was fantastic.
