What if every woman in town suddenly went on strike?

For the people of Stellar Plains, the staging of a new school production of an Athenian drama coincides with a mysterious cold wind that blows into houses and into hearts, stilling passion and cooling sheets. As the play moves into dress rehearsal and discontent simmers, opening night cannot come a moment too soon...

Review:

"Delightful and heartbreaking" (David Baddiel The Times)

"Her writing is effortlessly readable" (Lucy Scholes Sunday Times)

"A novel that tingles with playfulness and wicked observation" (Independent)

"There are lots of sharp insights on the generation gap, the pseudo-intimacy generated by the internet, and American high-school life; Wolitzer displays perfect comic timing in her awkward chats between jocular teachers and mortified teens" (Guardian)

"Highly entertaining and a serious page-turner. Wolitzer's humour and language create a compelling read" (Aesthetica)

Book Description:

Tender yet wickedly intelligent summer reading from Anne Tyler's naughty little sister

Book Description Vintage Publishing Jun 2012, 2012. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. 131x197x19 mm. Neuware - 'One winter a strange, formidable wind blows into the bedrooms of Stellar Plains, New Jersey, and most particularly, into the hearts and loins of Dory and Robby Lang - the easy-going and popular high school teachers at Eleanor Roosevelt High school - whose comfortable lives are suddenly thrown into confusion when Dory finds herself inexplicably repelled by her husband's touch. Back at school, in a curious case of life imitating art, the mysterious new drama teacher Fran Heller chooses as the end-of-term play Aristophanes' comedy 'Lysistrata', in which women withhold sexual privileges from their menfolk as a way to end the interminable Peloponnesian War. All across town, a quiet battle starts to take place between the sexes as caresses go unreciprocated, relationships come to abrupt and unexpected ends and marital issues suddenly explode to the surface. Women across Stellar Plains continue to be claimed by the spell - from Bev Cutler, the overweight guidance counsellor who has 'let herself go', to Leanne Bannerjee, the sexy school psychologist who could have any man she wants - even the Langs' teenage daughter, Willa, is not left untouched - until everything comes to a climax on the first night of 'Lysistrata'.' 288 pp. Englisch.
