For November, we have chosen the novel Heather: The Totality, by Matthew Weiner. Huffington Post named it a must-read for Fall and Oprah.com called it one of the “Best Books to Pick Up This November”. Matthew Weiner, creator of the hit show Mad Men, has written a chilling novel that explores class conflict between a wealthy family and a young man who poses a great threat to their daughter. Check out an excerpt of the new novel here.
The explosive debut novel – about family, power and privilege – from the creator of the award-winning Mad Men. Mark and Karen Breakstone have constructed the idyllic life of wealth and status they always wanted, made complete by their beautiful and extraordinary daughter Heather. But they are still not quite at the top. When the new owners of the penthouse above them begin construction, an unstable stranger penetrates the security of their comfortable lives and threatens to destroy everything they’ve created.
