My WOW is a little different this week. I'm not waiting for an upcoming release, I'm waiting for a book I recently ordered from Amazon.com.
We Need to Talk about Kevin by Lionel Shriver
Eva never really wanted to be a mother - and certainly not the mother of the unlovable boy who murdered seven of his fellow high school students, a cafeteria worker, and a much-adored teacher who tried to befriend him, all two days before his sixteenth birthday. Now, two years later, it is time for her to come to terms with marriage, career, family, parenthood, and Kevin's horrific rampage in a series of startlingly direct correspondences with her estranged husband, Franklin. Uneasy with the sacrifices and social demotion of motherhood from the start, Eva fears that her alarming dislike for her own son may be responsible for driving him so nihilistically off the rails.
I'd never heard of this book until I heard about the movie adaptation starring Tilden Swinton which has premiered at Cannes film festival. See the trailer.
I don't know why I keep getting involved in these types of topics and books. Seems very interesting to me.
