Críticas:

Stacy SchiffUnflinching and acute, "The Wife" packs a ferocious punch. And that is before Wolitzer's stunning twist of an ending. Katha PollittHow does Meg Wolitzer do it? Write those witty, deft, hilarious sentences that add up to so much tragic understanding of life? "The Wife" is a funny, sad, beautiful novel. Unforgettable. Lorrie MooreA triumph of tone and observation, "The Wife" is a blithe, brilliant take on sexual politics and literary vanity (as well as sexual vanity and literary politics). It is the most engaging, funny, and satisfying novel the witty Meg Wolitzer has yet written. Susan IsaacsThe wife of "The Wife" is a brilliantly conceived character, smart and foolish, tough-minded and weak-willed, witty and profoundly sad. And Meg Wolitzer's observations about gender and creativity: They are not only pointed, but penetrating. She has written some fine novels, but this is her best yet! Kurt AndersenFunny, smart, sad, gripping, and utterly surprising. Meg Wolitzer's subjects are the yin and yang of love and hate, and the various strange and shadowy transactions at the heart of a marriage -- specifically a marriage between members of that cohort too young to snuggle easily into the certainties of the Greatest Generation and too old to catch feminism's wave. Adam GopnikAn astonishingly dry, funny, and gripping account of two writers trapped for life in an ever-more bizarre marriage. Every detail she evokes about an era in American literary life, from college campuses to writer's parties, is persuasive, hilarious, and even frightening, while the indignation she registers about her heroine's predicaments is lightened and even liberated by her perfect comic timing. Allison PearsonMeg Wolitzer is so smart and funny she should be bottled and sold over the counter. "The Wife" is a complex, compelling portrait of a marriage that raises painful issues, even as it has you howling with recognition. Why does the better half feel she has to protect the lesser half from failure and disappointment? What exactly is the nature of the transaction between men and women -- and who picks up the check? The Wife picks up some of the hard questions with the lightest, most glittering of touches.

Reseña del editor:

When Wolitzer published her first novel, "Sleepwalking, " she received extraordinary critical acclaim for her humor, grace, and intelligence. Now, in her sixth novel, she has maintained the qualities that thrill readers, and introduces a character and subject matter that are her most ambitious, provocative, and powerful to date.
