Joe and Joan Castleman are en route to Helsinki. Joe is thinking about the prestigious literary prize he will receive there, while Joan is plotting how to leave him.

Review:

"Meg Wolitzer is so funny and clever she should be bottled and sold as tonic" ( Allison Pearson)

"A triumph of tone and observation, The Wife is a blithe, brilliant take on sexual politics" ( Lorrie Moore)

"Hilarious and touching" ( Erica Wagner, The Times)

"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)

From the Publisher:

A surprise bestseller in the US

'The Wife is a complex, compelling portrait of a marriage that raises painful issues, even as it has you howling with recognition. The Wife picks up some of the hard questions with the lightest, most glittering or touchesí Allison Pearson
