The Wife is an acerbic and astonishing take on a marriage from its public face to the private world behind closed doors.

Author Biography - Meg Wolitzer

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.
