"From one of the most popular and bestselling authors of our time, a penetrating and hilarious new novel about sex, love, and identity on the frontlines of America's culture wars. Eve Fletcher is trying to figure out what comes next. A forty-six-year-old divorcee whose beloved only child has just left for college, Eve is struggling to adjust to her empty nest when one night her phone lights up with a text message. Sent from an anonymous number, the mysterious sender tells Eve, "U R my MILF!" Over the months that follow, that message comes to obsess Eve. While leading her all-too-placid life--serving as Executive Director of the local senior center by day and taking a community college course on Gender and Society at night--Eve can't curtail her own interest in a porn website called MILFateria.com, which features the erotic exploits of ordinary, middle-aged women like herself. Before long, Eve's online fixations begin to spill over into real life, revealing new romantic possibilities that threaten to upend her quiet suburban existence. Meanwhile, miles away at the state college, Eve's son Brendan--a jock and aspiring frat boy--discovers that his new campus isn't nearly as welcoming to his hard-partying lifestyle as he had imagined. Only a few weeks into his freshman year, Brendan is floundering in a college environment that challenges his white-dude privilege and shames him for his outmoded, chauvinistic ideas of sex. As the New England autumn turns cold, both mother and son find themselves enmeshed in morally fraught situations that come to a head on one fateful November night. Sharp, witty, and provocative, Mrs. Fletcher is a timeless examination of sexuality, identity, parenthood, and the big clarifying mistakes people can make when they're no longer sure of who they are or where they belong"--… (mais)

The characters just felt a little flat and a tad too contrived, but overall an interesting and entertaining book. ( )

A fast and very readable book with tons of ironic humour that seems so fit for these times. Couldn't put it down and wonder why not 5 stars? Anyway, loved it. ( )

This book deals with a lot of feelings about sexuality and age. It shows how anyone at different points in their lives can be trying to find themselves. Life changes. People change. ( )

2.5 Books like this one make me feel like such a square. Compared to Mrs. Fletcher, my life is pretty vanilla. She just sent her only child, Brendan to college and as a divorced, middle-aged woman (tho younger than I am!) she starts to look for outlets for herself. Work is fine -- she runs a Senior Center, but that isn't really the place to find friendship. Eve signs up for a course about gender at the community college and has her consciousness raised and her world starts to include MILF porn sites and also breaking down gender and age (younger! Julian who is her son's classmate) barriers in her sex life. Meanwhile her son Brendan has his consciousness raised at college by a strong girl who doesn't put up with his standard jerk behavior which borders on misogynistic. He gets his comeuppance, though it's unclear if he gets the message. He is a little dense. There is a lot of humor here and Perrotta is one for satire, so there's an inherent outrageousness, but still. Eve travels full circle by the end, back to a respectable upper middle class, middle aged lifestyle. Good for Perrotta for tackling the topic of gender and being ahead of the #metoo movement. The squirminess is my own issue. ( )

Awful... chock full of PC themes and lonely people and porn obssession. It was exhausting. ( )
