Maria Semple reads from "Where'd You Go, Bernadette"
Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she's an opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she's a best friend and just Mom. Then Bernadette disappears.
To find her mother, Bee compiles emails, official documents, and secret correspondence —- creating a compulsively readable and touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter's role in an absurd world.
