Ex-Fairfielder to discuss new novel

Author and former Fairfield resident Susan Kietzman will discuss her new novel, "A Changing Marriage," on Thursday evening, March 20, at the downtown Fairfield University Bookstore.

Kietzman will appear at 7 p.m. on the second floor of the 1499 Post Road store.

"A Changing Marriage," her second novel, traces the relationship of Karen Spears and Bob Parsons, a bright and attractive couple who meet in college, get married and seem to have a romance-movie life, the bookstore said.

Bob's career is soaring, but Karen puts hers on hold when she gets pregnant. What had been a caring relationship begins to disolve as Bob singlemindedly pursues his next promotion, while Karen is overwhelmed being a stay-at-home mother, the bookstore said. When resentment and disenchantment build on both sides, Karen finds herself at a crossroads.

Kietzman's first novel, "The Good Life," was published in 2013.
