The Wife

A Novel
Written by Meg Wolitzer | Narrated by Dawn Harvey
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Interestings, this “rollicking, perfectly pitched triumph” (Los Angeles Times) follows Joan and Joseph’s tumultuous marriage to its breaking point. Glenn Close earned a Golden Globe for her work in the film adaption of this story!

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

Meg Wolitzer brings her characteristic wit and intelligence to a provocative story about the evolution of a marriage, the nature of partnership, the question of a male or female sensibility, and the place for an ambitious woman in a man’s world.

The moment Joan Castleman decides to leave her husband, they are thirty-five thousand feet above the ocean on a flight to Helsinki. Joan’s husband Joseph is one of America’s preeminent novelists, about to receive a prestigious international award, and Joan, who has spent forty years subjugating her own literary talents to fan the flames of his career, has finally decided to stop. From this gripping opening, Meg Wolitzer flashes back to Smith College and Greenwich Village in the 1950s and follows the course of the marriage that has brought the couple to this breaking point—one that results in a shocking revelation.

With her skillful storytelling and pitch-perfect observations, Wolitzer has crafted a wise and candid look at the choices all men and women make—in marriage, work, and life.
