Heather, the Totality by Matthew Weiner

Heather, the Totality

Matthew Weiner

Wonderfully successful Mark, Karen and their super attractive daughter Heather are living the perfect 21st century American dream. But are they? Or, are the words of the (English) poet 'They really fuck you up, Your mum and dad.' more of a reality?

Read this great novella (by the author of 'Mad Men') and decide. Then read it again and decide differently?

Extract

Mark was sick at her suggestion and screamed at her hypocrisy. Of all people she was the one with the obsession. She was the one who couldn't see anything in the world except her daughter. He demanded they move.
