[VIDEO] Mona Simpson on Love and Spying in "Casebook"
[Note: We've simultaneously published a print review of Mona Simpson's new book by Susanna Luthi.]

"I wanted a love story, but I wanted a love story that went beyond the little circle of the lovers," says Simpson about her latest novel, Casebook. Enter Miles Adler-Rich, a self-described snoop whose spying reveals what he "most didn't want to know" about his parents' divorce and his mother's new relationship.
