Synopsis of Casebook: A Novel by Mona Simpson: From the acclaimed and award-winning author: a beguiling new novel about an eavesdropping boy working to discover the obscure mysteries of his unraveling family. He uncovers instead what he least wants to know: the workings of his parents’ private lives. And even then he can’t stop snooping.

Miles Adler-Rich, helped by his friend Hector, spies and listens in on his separating parents. Both boys are in thrall to Miles’s unsuspecting mother, Irene, who is “pretty for a mathematician.” They rifle through her dresser drawers and strip-mine her computer diary, finding that all leads pull them straight into her bedroom, and into questions about a stranger from Washington, D.C., who weaves in and out of their lives. Their amateur detective work starts innocently but soon takes them to the far reaches of adult privacy as they acquire knowledge that will affect the family’s well-being, prosperity, and sanity. Once burdened with this powerful information, the boys struggle to deal with the existence of evil, and proceed to concoct hilarious modes of revenge on their villains and eventually, haltingly, learn to offer animal comfort to those harmed and to create an imaginative path to their own salvation.


  1. I snooped on my parents growing up. I was a huge fan of the book Harriet the Spy, and I made a notebook and went around observing everything and making notes like she did.... yes, I was a geeky child :)

  2. No, sadly, I didn't snoop! I should have! But with an older brother, it was just too dicey :)

  3. I used to snoop in my mom' closet and into her several hat boxes!

  4. I never did snoop on my parents but I sure did on my sister!!

  5. I didn't snoop on my parents because I didn't want to know. lol

  6. Yes, I have snooped on my parents because my mother is mentally ill so I wanted to hear her talk to her sister on the phone and see what lies she was telling her about me and my dad.

  7. Yes, I snooped through the drawer where my parents kept all of their important papers and learned that they hadn't wed until *after* I was born. Awkwarrrd!
