Adapted into the feature film MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN starring Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, and Ansel Elgort, directed by Jason Reitman.
The author of The Average American Male and The Lie returns with a shocking, salacious, and surprisingly subtle new novel of the average American family. Like Neil Strauss and Nick Hornby, Chad Kultgen has the capacity to enthrall and astonish even the most ardent readers of contemporary literary fiction. In Men, Women & Children, his incisive vision, unerring prose, and red-light-district imagination are at their most ambitious and surprising, as he explores the sexual pressures of junior high school students and their parents navigating the internet’s shared landscape of pornography, blogs, social networking, and its promise of opportunities, escapes, reinvented identities, and unexpected conflicts.
Chad Kultgen graduated from the USC School of Cinematic Arts. His novels include The Average American Male; The Lie; Men, Women & Children; The Average American Marriage, which is the basis for the Jason Reitman film of the same name; and the graphic novel Darklight. He lives in California.
