Bookvie: Men, Women & Children - out October 17, 2014 (USA)

Who's in it:
Kaitlyn Dever, Rosemarie DeWitt, Ansel Elgort

What's it all about (book blurb from Goodreads):
The author of "The Average American Male" and "The Lie" returns with a shocking and salacious--yet surprisingly rich and subtle--new novel of the average American family.

In this, his most ambitious and surprising book yet, Kultgen explores the sexual pressures at work on two different generations navigating the same Internet landscape: junior high school students and their parents. 

Among the families traced in Men, Women & Children: 

•Kent, a recent divorcĂ© re-entering the dating world—and his son, Tim, a football star-turned-World of Warcraft-addict, who learns via Facebook that his mom is getting remarried. 

• Dawn, a single mom who charges anonymous men $12.95 a month to view suggestive online pictures of her daughter, Hannah—who wants to lose her v-card before any other eighth grader. 

• Don, who sneaks onto any available computer for his daily fix of streaming porn—and his son, Chris, whose porn tastes make his father’s look like Disney. 

• Patricia, who is determined to keep the demons of the Internet from preying on her daughter, Brandy—who uses her secret MySpace identity to try on an alternative Goth identity and blog about threesomes she’s never had. 

Whether thirteen or thirty-five, Kultgen’s characters inhabit a world where privacy is non-existent, sex is currency, and information never disappears—yet happiness is still a dream.
