Author Info
Jennifer Weiner
While Jennifer Weiner's novels are not often accorded lengthy, respectful reviews in serious literary outlets, she is one of the world's most popular writers of contemporary women's fiction, and her books make frequent appearances on the bestseller list. "You realize you're making certain trade-offs when your first book is called GOOD IN BED and there's naked legs and cheesecake on the cover," she has said. "I wish I'd known [when I started] it's okay to be called ?a delightful beach romp.' Lots of people want to read a delightful beach romp." Weiner was born on an army base in Louisiana and moved with her family to Connecticut when she was a toddler. After earning a bachelor's degree in English from Princeton University in 1991, she embarked on a career in journalism, writing op-ed pieces and celebrity profiles, among other assignments. In the wake of a bitter romantic breakup, Weiner wrote GOOD IN BED, whose zaftig heroine, Cannie Shapiro, is humiliated when her boyfriend pens a magazine article titled "Loving a Larger Woman." Published in 2001, the novel was an immediate hit, and Weiner's subsequent books have enjoyed similar success. IN HER SHOES (2002), the tale of two squabbling sisters and their feisty grandmother, was adapted as a film starring Toni Collette, Cameron Diaz and Shirley MacLaine in 2004, and Weiner was also the creator of the ABC sitcom The Great State of Georgia, which aired in 2011. Many interviewers have commented that the writer is the type of funny, empathetic, and outgoing person who would make a fabulous best friend. That observation, she has quipped, makes her real best friend "roll her eyes. Hard."
From the Publisher
Annotation Jennifer Weiner, who excels at writing fiction about bright young women as they make their way through life, turns her attention to the joys and woes of pregnancy. Three friends in Philadelphia are pregnant when they meet, and Weiner describes their utterly realistic adventures en route to motherhood and beyond. Becky is a plus-size chef married to a lovable doctor; Kelly's blonde adorableness doesn't help much when her husband loses his job and turns into a couch potato; Ayinde is drop-dead gorgeous but her sports-superstar husband is probably cheating on her. In addition, Lia--new in town--is estranged from her husband and trying to accept the death of her baby. As each woman copes with her attitudes to marriage and motherhood, plus a kaleidoscopic array of personal problems, she can always count on the support of her warm circle of friends--and generate a few laughs in the process.
Editors Note Jennifer Weiner's richest, wittiest, most true-to-life novel yet tells the story of three very different women as they navigate one of life's most wonderful and perilous transitions: the journay of new motherhood.Becky is a plump, sexy chef who has a wonderfull husband and baby girl, a restaurant that received a citywide acclaim -- and the mother-in-law from hell. Kelly is an event planner who's struggling to balance her work and motherhood while dealing with unemployed husband who seems content to channel-surf for eight hours a day. Ayinde's basketball superstar husband breaks her trust at her most vulnerable moment, putting their new family even more in the public eye. Then, there's Lia, a Philadelphia native who has left her Hollywood career behind, along with her husband, and a tragic secret to start her life all over again.From prenatal yoga to postbirth sex, Little Earthquakes is a frank, funny, fiercely perceptive take on the comedies and tragedies of love and marriage.
