In Meg Wolitzer's compelling and provocative novel, The Wife, Joan Castleman questions her life choices as she travels to Stockholm with her husband, where he is slated to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. Joan has spent forty years subjugating her own literary talents to fan the flames of his career, and has finally decided to stop.
From this gripping opening, Wolitzer flashes back fifty years to 1950s Smith College and Greenwich Village -- the beginning of the Castleman relationship -- and follows the course of the famous marriage that has brought them to this breaking point, culminating in a shocking ending that outs a carefully kept secret.
