Helt ok bok om relationer och könsroller. varför agerar vi som vi gör? Hade sett filmen innan jag läste boken vilket förtar en del av nyfikenheten. ( )

Content Note: (critical treatment of) sexism

Plot:
Joan and Joe Castleman have been married for many years and Joe has finally reached the pinnacle of his career: he is about to receive the most prestigious prize for his literature. They are on their way to Helsinki to receive the prize when Joan decides that it is time for her to leave her husband, finally. Reflecting on their relationship that started at college in the 50s, she wonders how they ended up where they are now.

The Wife is a very critical look at the literary establishment and its sexist ways and as such, it is definitely a piece of literature I appreciated a lot. But reading it was also a little frustrating and in the end, the book didn’t win me over entirely.

I wasn't expecting much from this book, but I was surprised at how much I looked forward to reading it. I thought the author's insights into what it's like to be a women were right on the money...almost too close for comfort since I would have a hard time admitting out loud that I thought or felt this way. The only "bad" part about the book was that the author couldn't really hide the secret throughout the story, so when the ending came, I wasn't shocked, but it was still a good read. ( )

From page one, I thought she was a solid writer: the book was full of clever metaphors, and although a few of them were very off-putting (she really didn't need that to attract attention to her work, not at all, I thought...), I decided to glide over them, because the plot was excellent and so vividly and poignantly presented. The movie "The Wife" (2017), starring Glenn Close, was also very good, but as in most cases, the book told more.

"I am now 64 years old and mostly as invisible to men as a swirl of dust mites", the protagonist/narrator says at the start. And she proceeds to tell this unusual tale, which of course, does have ubiquitous components of the period (like men "owning the world" in the 1950s - not just in the writers' milieu, but mostly everywhere), but her particular case, in the midst of it, shifts and changes and culminates in an incredible denouement. If you didn't see the movie beforehand, she really keeps it up until the very end to disclose the shocking truth. But even then she faces a dilemma... ( )

My opinion of this book has perhaps been marred by the fact that I read a collection of Sylvia Plath's correspondence before picking it up.

Joan Castleman's story is not dissimilar to Plath's in certain ways, the professional frustration and monklike dedication to the support of her philandering husband are motifs that featured heavily in Plath's life. Wolitzer herself even said in an interview that she decided to focus on the plight of women writers in the 50s because she had been reading Plath's journals.

But these similarities did not make the story more than marginally compelling for me, which is unfortunate because this novel is perfectly constructed with all the neatness of a Bach fugue. Wolitzer's portrayal of the attitudes of the age is also impressive, the lack of self-belief that Joan displays is authentic, as is the short sketch of the female writer who follows her dream only to be ignored by the all-male literary establishment. Joan is not sympathetic at all but her motivations are clear and understandable.

What this book truly lacks is the messiness of the source material that inspired it. Its perfection has robbed it of depth. ( )

The moment I decided to leave him, the moment I thought, enough, were thirty-five thousand feet above the ocean, hurtling forward but giving the illusions of stillness and tranquility. Just like our marriage, I could have said, but why ruin everything right now?

As a rule, the men who own the world are hyperactively sexual, though not necessarily with their wives.
All first wives are crazy-- violently and eye-rollingly so
Everyone knows how women soldier on, how women dream up blueprints, recipes, ideas for a better world, and then sometimes lose them on the way to the crib in the middle of the night, on the way to the Stop & Shop, or the bath. They lose them on the way to greasing the path on which their husband and children will ride serenely through life.
But it's their choice... They make a choice to be that kind of wife, that kind of mother. Nobody forces them anymore; that's all over now. We had a women's movement in America, we had Betty Friedan, and Gloria Steinem... We're in a whole new world now. Women are powerful.
Everyone needs a wife; even wives need wives. Wives tend; they hover. Their ears are twin sensitive instruments, satellites pricking up the slightest scrape of dissatisfaction. Wives bring broth, we bring paper clips, we bring ourselves and our pliant, warm bodies. We know just what to say to the men who for some reason have a great deal of trouble taking consistent care of themselves or anyone else.
'Listen,' we say. 'Everything will be okay.'
And then, as if our lives depend on it, we make sure it is.
'Ah, a Sarah Lawrence girl,' he said with pleasure, deciding at that moment she was a highly creative type, her hands damp with both acrylic paint from art class and ambrosia from some middle-of-the-night winter-solstice ritual."
New York City was a spectacular place in which to take a walk in the middle of the night if you were a young, ambitious, confident man.
