Alternate Side: A Novelby Anna Quindlen | Conversation Starters
New York Times bestselling author Anna Quindlen writes another provocative novel about modern life in the city. Quindlen, author of Miller’s Valley and Still Life with Bread Crumbs, writes about the life of Nora Nolan. Nolan leads a charmed life in her dream city together with her husband Charlie. They have good jobs, a home in the city and amazing children who were off to college. New York City is her comfort zone. The owners around her block watched each others’ children grown up. Everything is set to change in one morning when Nora discovers an incident that shakes her city, her job, her marriage and herself.
USA Today praises Quindlen’s newest novel for capturing the anxieties of modern life and “the realities of life among the long-married.” Booklist describes Alternate Side a precise evaluation of the modern life and the “universal human frailties.”
