Description
Now a major motion picture starring Glenn Close in her Golden Globe&;winning role! One of bestselling author Meg Wolitzer&;s most beloved books&;an &;acerbically funny&; (Entertainment Weekly) and &;intelligent&;portrait of deception&; (The New York Times). The Wife is the story of the long and stormy marriage between a world-famous novelist, Joe Castleman, and his wife Joan, and the secret they&;ve kept for decades. The novel opens just as Joe is about to receive a prestigious international award, The Helsinki Prize, to honor his career as one of America&;s preeminent novelists. Joan, who has spent forty years subjugating her own literary talents to fan the flames of his career, finally decides to stop. Important and ambitious, The Wife is a sharp-eyed and compulsively readable story about a woman forced to confront the sacrifices she&;s made in order to achieve the life she thought she wanted. &;A rollicking, perfectly pitched triumph&;Wolitzer&;s talent for comedy of manners reaches a heady high&; (Los Angeles Times), in this wise and candid look at the choices all men and women make&;in marriage, work, and life.
