9780099461043: Stanley and the Women

Just when Stanley Duke thinks it's safe to sink into middle age, his son, Steve, goes insane. As if that weren't terrible enough, Stanley finds himself beset on all sides by women - neurotic, half-baked, critical or just plain capricious.

From Library Journal:

Stanley is advertising manager of a London newspaper. The women are his ex-wife Nowell (```a not very good actress who isn't very beautiful'''), new wife Susan (```You certainly do marry some extraordinary people, Stanley'''), his dreadful mother-in-law, and psychiatrist Trish Collings, who's maltreating his son for schizophrenia. Rumor has it that Amis's new novel was rejected by several American publishers whose (female) editors took offense at its aggressively sexist tone. ```Would you assent to the proposition that all women are mad?''' a (male) psychiatrist asks Stanley. ```Yes. No, not all. There are exceptions, naturally.''' But in this tightly constructed, biting comedy no one comes off very well. Highly recommended for most fiction collections. Grove Koger, Boise P.L., Id.
