Novelist Tom Perrotta Presents His New Novel: Tracy Flick Can’t Win (In-Person at The Book Stall)
The Book Stall is pleased to present author Tom Perrotta, reading from and discussing his new novel, Tracy Flick Can’t Win. This free program is co-sponsored by the Winnetka-Northfield Public Library! As space is limited, registration is required. To reserve your spot, stop by the store, call The Book Stall at 847-446-8880, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In Tracy Flick Can’t Win, Tom Perrotta brings back the iconic protagonist from his 1998 novel, Election–the inimitable Tracy Flick. (Film lovers will remember director Alexander Payne’s hit, Academy Award-nominated film adaptation, starring Reese Witherspoon as Tracy.)
In a starred review, Publishers Weekly says, "This is the rare sequel that lives up to the original."
A virtuoso of social satire, Perrotta always casts a gimlet-yet-humane eye on the politics of suburban enclaves. In Tracy Flick Can’t Win, set some twenty years after Election, Tracy is the assistant principal at a New Jersey high school, hoping to move up when the principal announces his retirement. When the high school decides to launch a Hall of Fame to boost morale, Tracy must once again navigate the treacherous waters of high school politics. A cast of expertly drawn, deeply flawed but endearing characters narrates the story as the build-up to the Hall of Fame ceremony unfolds, leading to an unexpected conclusion.
Tom Perrotta is the author of numerous, highly acclaimed national bestsellers, including Mrs. Fletcher, The Leftovers, and Little Children, all of which were adapted for TV or film. He was the showrunner on the HBO series Mrs. Fletcher (2019), starring Kathryn Hahn; the co-creator and executive producer of HBO’s Peabody Award-winning series The Leftovers (2014-2017), starring Justin Theroux and Carrie Coons; and the Academy Award-nominated screenwriter of Little Children (2006), starring Kate Winslet.
