A Perfect Divorce

(2004)
A novel by

 
The well-intentioned parents of a teenage son attempt to lessen the impact of their failed two-career marriage with an intelligent, successful divorce. But their son goes off the tracks, staggering under the weight of his parents' expectations and need for denial. His troubles send shock waves through adult relationships on all sides. The serious implications of divorce on ex-spouses, their new partners, their family members and the absurd college pressures on young people today is the emotional landscape of A Perfect Divorce. Through riveting storytelling, Corman addresses the popular cultural myth, created out of wishful thinking, that children of divorce can be emotionally protected by careful parenting, and that divorce can be relatively risk-free. With the same clear-eyed perspective and insight about contemporary life that he brought to Kramer vs. Kramer, Corman shows us where we have come since Kramer and where we are now, in a novel that is timely and moving.
