“In Where’d You Go, Bernadette?, Maria Semple gives us a comedy of manners about the Emerald City that brings together everything we love about the television show Arrested Development (for which Maria was a writer), mixes in hyperactive modern parenting, adds a healthy dash of comedy about business culture, and tells the story of a mother and daughter in the brilliant, affecting, and bent tradition of Aimee Bender and Tom Perrotta.”—Village Books events page.

And watch the funniest trailer, ever! Semple makes the rounds visiting the Seattle literati, dropping in on local stores, Richard Hugo House—even Garth Stein’s house. Who knew Tom Skerritt shopped at Elliott Bay?
