Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

The novels of author Tom Perrotta were rich with honest, insightful, and very funny examinations of life in suburban America. These same qualities made his work a natural destination for independent filmmakers, who have made acclaimed features based on his work - 1999's dark comedy "Election" and 2006's "Little Children" - for which Perrotta co-wrote the script and received a Golden Globe nomination that same year.
