Think the suburbs, and fatherhood, are boring? Not in this novel from Harper Paperbacks, in which playground scenes are cover for discreet flirting and the seedbed of flings. Olear tracks the course of a single day in the life of a stay-at-home father of two toddlers who suspects his wife, who’s away on business, is cheating on him. The more he looks, the more evidence he finds, and the more free he feels to indulge his own wandering eye. Olear delivers a lively and keenly observed portrait of twenty-first century parenthood.
