Prior to seeing Men, Women, & Children this weekend, I read the book written by Chad Kultgen. It's not a pretty book even though I racked through it in only three days. At just over 300 pages, it is a very quick read.
Not being familiar with Kultgen's work prior to reading, I had only known that he co-created the new NBC sitcom, Bad Judge. While Bad Judge keeps things cleaner for TV, the book doesn't keep things clean. Far from it, actually. It's very graphic and even though Kultgen's message means well, it's certainly not a book I would read again or even recommend to anyone else.
Kultgen's book explores the sexual pressures of junior high students and their parents.
