The tie-in edition for the major motion picture starring Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce and Christian Slater
Meg Wolitzer is the author of several acclaimed novels- The Uncoupling ('tingles with playfulness and wicked observation' Independent); The Position ('one of the best and most human books I've read all year' Erica Wagner); The Ten-Year Nap ('as incisive and pitiless and clear-eyed a chronicler of female-male tandems as Philip Roth or John Updike' Chicago Tribune) and, most recently, The Interestings. She is married with two sons and lives in New York City.
"Hilarious and touching" -- Erica Wagner * The Times *
"Meg Wolitzer is so funny and clever she should be bottled and sold as tonic" * Allison Pearson *
"It's funny, and it's brilliant, and I press it on everyone I know" -- Rachel Cooke * BBC Radio 4, A Good Read *
"A triumph of tone and observation, The Wife is a blithe, brilliant take on sexual politics" -- Lorrie Moore
"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 *
