“A virtuoso of time and place, Jessica Shattuck has created a heart-smashingly good novel, an important story that will change the way you look at current events, how you regard your neighbors. It will leave you asking, “What would I do if I were in these characters shoes? Would my conscience pass the test?” Powerful and prescient, an important book everyone should read.”
— Jamie Ford, New York Times bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, and Songs of Willow Frost.
“Perfect Life is a vivid, fascinating snapshot of the way some of us live now. Jessica Shattuck’s engrossing, deceptively ambitious novel explores a wide range of subjects — from the logistics of adultery and the complexities of friendship to the nuts and bolts of video game design and pharmaceutical marketing — with a shrewd and sympathetic eye.”
— Tom Perotta, author of Little Children and The Leftovers.
