About the Author

Stacey Lender started her career as a roadie and rose through the ranks from luggage schlepper to marketing executive for entertainment brands including Radio City Music Hall, USA Network, Madison Square Garden, Sesame Street Live, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and One World Observatory at the top of One World Trade Center. She grew up in the suburbs of New York City with a god-awful perm and later graduated from Cornell University. Today she lives in Manhattan and Connecticut with her husband and two daughters, and has traveled to all fifty states. City Mouse is her first novel. For more information, visit


"The novel...examines the life of a young wife and mother grappling with her identity and where to call home, revealing unspoken truths about marriage, motherhood, and friendship."
--Cornell Human Ecology Magazine

"If you're looking for a book for backyard or beach reading now that the sun has finally come out, City Mouse...may be just the read you need."
--Rockland County Times

"This book is everything I don't want my life to be, but sure don't mind hearing about someone else living through it...This was a quick, easy read. It really makes you take a second look at your life and it's a great reminder not to try to live up to other people's standards. No one really knows what goes on in a marriage except the two people in it."
--Ramblings of a Marine Wife (blog)

"This defines a beach read for me! So relatable to our own lives as it is all about mom trying to find out exactly where she fits in the in the scheme of suburbia--all that goes along with it. Plus, when a book is described as 'The Stepford Wives meets Bad Moms, ' how can you go wrong?"
--Mom of the Year (blog)

"City Mouse is a sharp and sophisticated novel of suburban life with a narrative voice that is equal parts witty, observant, and vulnerable. A wonderful debut!"
--Susan Isaacs, New York Times best-selling author

"For every city mom who fears death by suburbia--and for every suburban mom who wonders if it's just her--this insightful, funny trip into the secrets behind those picket fences is required reading."
--Maureen Sherry, author of Opening Belle

"City Mouse reminds mothers of that priceless lesson: the grass is always greener...and maybe even alcohol-soaked Astroturf. I tore through this book like a bored, competitive housewife tears through her Xanax."
--Faith Salie, author of Approval Junkie
