The War Between The Tates subtly dissects the disintegration of a perfect marriage. Brian Tate and his wife Erica seem to have it all: a strong relationship, beautiful children, good friends and enough money. But when Brian, a middle-aged professor of political science, begins an affair with a female student, the snug fabric of the Tates' lives starts to unravel alarmingly fast.

Alison Lurie enters into the worlds of husband, wife, adulteress and child with equal measures of empathy and humour in this richly imagined story of a family breakdown, set in the sharply observed domain of American academia.

Product Description:

Once the Tates were an attractive family, but now Erica is bored, Brian's career is at a standstill, and the children have become revolting teenagers. Then Erica discovers that her husband is carrying on with one of his students. The author won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for 'Foreign Affairs'.

Review:

"Put together with such skill the effect is something glorious in its entirety and flawless under the closest scrutiny; like a fine piece of needlework" (The Times)

"Her humour is a delight and she writes with an almost unholy relish" (Irish Times)

"Lurie miraculously seems to understand men as well as she understands women... she constructs her American academic backdrops with the craftsmanlike skill; she evinces rare wisdom, wit, and compassion; and she writes like an angel" (Sunday Times)
