Book DescriptionNOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING GLENN CLOSE A husband. A wife. A secret. Behind any great man, there's always a greater woman. Joe and Joan Castleman are on an aeroplane, 35,000 feet above the ocean. Joe is thinking about the prestigious literary prize he is about to receive and Joan is plotting how to leave him. For too long Joan has played the role of supportive wife, turning a blind eye to his misdemeanours, subjugating her own talents and quietly being the keystone of his success. The Wife is an acerbic and astonishing take on a marriage from its public face to the private world behind closed doors. Wolitzer has masterfully created an expose of lives lived in partnership and the truth that behind the compromises, dedication and promise inherent in marriage there so often lies a secret... `A triumph of tone and observation, The Wife is a blithe, brilliant take on sexual politics' Lorrie Moore
Editorial ReviewHilarious and touching -- Erica Wagner * The Times * "Meg Wolitzer is so funny and clever she should be bottled and sold as tonic" * Allison Pearson * "It's funny, and it's brilliant, and I press it on everyone I know" -- Rachel Cooke * BBC Radio 4, A Good Read * "A triumph of tone and observation, The Wife is a blithe, brilliant take on sexual politics" -- Lorrie Moore "With a great lightness of touch, Wolitzer's novel satirises American literary circles of the Seventies and Eighties and traces the generation of wives who poured their own creative energies into "stoking the fires" of their husbands' reputations" -- Emma Hagestadt * Independent *
About the AuthorMeg Wolitzer is the author of several acclaimed novels: The Uncoupling (`tingles with playfulness and wicked observation' Independent); The Position (`one of the best and most human books I've read all year' Erica Wagner); The Ten-Year Nap (`as incisive and pitiless and clear-eyed a chronicler of female-male tandems as Philip Roth or John Updike' Chicago Tribune) and, most recently, The Interestings. She is married with two sons and lives in New York City.
