Melanie Gideon 

When: Tue., May 29, 7 p.m. 2012

If you loved Bridget Jones' Diary, you'll want to check out Melanie Gideon's Wife 22 -- a Bridget Jones for the American soccer-mom set. When Alice Buckle takes time off from shuttling kids and making meals to respond to an online survey titled "Marriage in the 21st Century," she has no idea how her life is about to change. Forced to examine her relationships and decisions, and given her titular "Wife 22" pseudonym, her correspondence with Researcher 101 becomes ... well, let's just say it's complicated. At A Great Good Place for Books (6120 LaSalle Ave., Oakland) on Tuesday, May 29. 7 p.m., free. 510-339-8210 or
