"Powerful. Koppelman's instincts help her navigate these choppy waters with inventiveness and integrity." —Los Angeles Times
Now a major motion picture starring Sarah Silverman in her dramatic-acting debut, and Josh Charles,I Smile Back tells the affecting tale of Laney Brooks, a mother and wife on a self-destructive streak. She takes the drugs she wants, sleeps with the men she wants, disappears when she wants. Lurking beneath Laney's seemingly composed surface is the impulse to follow in her father's footsteps, to leave and topple her family's balance in the process.

“This crushing novel by the author ofA Mouthful of Air is a shocking portrait of suburban ennui gone horribly awry. Koppelman’s prose style is understated and crackling; each sentence is laden with a foreboding sense of menace. Like a crime scene or a flaming car wreck, it becomes impossible not to stare.” —Publishers Weekly
