A glimpse into parallel lives in a suburban town Tom Perrotta has made recognizably his in novels like ELECTION, LITTLE CHILDREN and this fall’s THE LEFTOVERS. Clay wouldn’t have said his life was defined by his place on the high school football team’s roster, but when he’s sidelined by injury, everything, including his sense of self, seems different. And it’s not just that his concussion was bad enough to cause his parents and doctors to worry, to make him have trouble concentrating. It’s that he’s seeing the previously familiar people in his world—from his girlfriend Megan to his geriatric neighbor Mrs. Scotto—from a new perspective. Perrotta’s warmth and ability to describe the dramatic moments in the average lives of characters of every age are perfectly presented in “Senior Season”, a story that will add a layer to fans’ pleasure in this author’s themes and concerns. This e-book also includes an excerpt of THE LEFTOVERS.
