Mondo-selling author Jennifer Weiner’s just-published new novel, All Fall Down, centers its narrative on Allison Weiss, a wise-ass wife, mother and writer whose seemingly perfect life is altered by an addiction to prescription painkillers. “I wanted to tell the story, not just about a woman who’s an addict, but a woman who doesn’t feel at home in her own life,” Weiner recently told the The Star-Ledger in New Jersey. Women in one crisis or another has long been a topic of interest for Weiner, whose books have sometimes been called “chick lit.” Weiner discusses All Fall Down at Joseph-Beth.
