Left Bank Books welcomes Midwest author Maren Cooper, who will sign and discuss her new novel, A Better Next!
At the top of her career, twenty plus years married with one child left to launch and fostering the illusion of having a perfect life, Jess Lawson is blindsided by her husband’s decision to move from their St. Louis home and across the country without her. Amid their acrimonious divorce, Jess also uncovers surprising financial corruption at work that threatens a scandal for her client—and the well-being of the many unsuspecting patients and physicians they serve. A smart, relatable story for every woman who’s gone bold to sort out her next chapter, A Better Next shows how—with a little soul searching and a supportive circle of friends and colleagues—it’s possible to redefine happiness and establish a liberating, new normal at any stage of life.
"Both sprightly and deeply felt, A Better Next captures the losses, trade-offs, and rewards of the contemporary career woman/wife/mother. Many are the women who will recognize themselves in Jess' story." —Faith Sullivan, author of Good Night, Mr. Wodehouse
