When Jack Lang, the owner of a North Carolina mulch company, impulsively buys the house across the street from where he lives, it’s the final straw for his wife, Beth, who flees into the arms of Jack’s best friend. What happens next is the plot to “This is Just Exactly Like You,” Elon University associate professor Drew Perry’s debut novel and a work of fiction garnering rave reviews from national book critics.

Published by Viking Press, the book’s complicating factor is Jack and Beth’s six-year-old son Hendrick. When “Hen” suddenly starts speaking Spanish, it forces Jack to confront many of his assumptions about life and relationships.
