Little Children

Picked up a copy of Tom Perrotta's novel Little Children at a used bookstore this weekend and I'm loving it. Part of the fun is that it's the first novel I've read in a year that wasn't in some way research for my novel, but also I'm just crazy about his narrative voice for some reason. That's a little scary though since I'm doing a lot of writing right now and I'm not quite sure whether I'm hoping or worried that my writing will start to sound like his.
