The Wishbones by Tom Perrotta

wishbonesDave is yet another thirty-something guy who’s not ready to turn in his badge of boyhood for the dreaded threads of adult-dom. He’s a member of the Wishbones, a wedding band that rocks the greater New Jersey area. But Dave can’t rock and roll all night anymore since his long-time girlfriend Julie starts making noises that sound suspiciously like wedding bells. Suddenly Dave’s either got to go with the music and follow his dream of being a REAL rock star or marry Julie–neither of which sounds too appealing. So, he puts off his decision by having a steamy affair with this hip NYC poet Gretchen. Heads are gonna roll and guitar strings and hearts are gonna break before the end of this modern slacker classic. Don’t miss a rock-n-roll minute of it! Also, please note Perrotta is the man behind the steamy movie and novel Little Children, and the book/movie combo Election starring Matthew Broderick and Reese Witherspoon.
