Amy Sohn’s New Park Slope Novel Out Tuesday
Sure, Norman and Jules, a new toy store that will sell “handcrafted and imaginative toys” is going into the space that used to be Park Slope Florist. And Little Things has expanded to fill the pet shop that vacated next to Shawn’s on Seventh Avenue between Garfield and President.
Toys, toys and more toys.
But there is a big story lurking beneath the quiet of summer Park Slope. Tomorrow is the publication date of Motherland, Amy Sohn’s new novel. Her previous novel, Prospect Park West, which was a satiric and sometimes mean-spirited look at Park Slope parents, was the novel Park Slopers loved to love and/or hate in the summer of 2009.
Motherland focuses on the discontent and sexual infidelity of Park Slope parents. It should really be quite the conversation starter at brownstone book groups.
You can buy a copy at the Community Bookstore and find out what all the sexy buzz is about.
