Description

Now a major motion picture starring Glenn Close in her Golden Globe-winning role

One of bestselling author Meg Wolitzer's most beloved books--an "acerbically funny" (Entertainment Weekly) and "intelligent...portrait of deception" (The New York Times).

The Wife is the story of the long and stormy marriage between a world-famous novelist, Joe Castleman, and his wife Joan, and the secret they've kept for decades. The novel opens just as Joe is about to receive a prestigious international award, The Helsinki Prize, to honor his career as one of America's preeminent novelists. Joan, who has spent forty years subjugating her own literary talents to fan the flames of his career, finally decides to stop.

Important and ambitious, The Wife is a sharp-eyed and compulsively readable story about a woman forced to confront the sacrifices she's made in order to achieve the life she thought she wanted. "A rollicking, perfectly pitched triumph...Wolitzer's talent for comedy of manners reaches a heady high" (Los Angeles Times), in this wise and candid look at the choices all men and women make--in marriage, work, and life.

The Woman Behind the Man
By: Dine Rostianti

Joan Ames, the main character in this story, was a shy girl. After becoming Joe Castleman's wife, she remains a shy, loyal and very devoted woman to her husband. The story is told in the first-person point of view of the Joan Castleman, the wife. Joan tells of moments in her marriage. Even though there are many sad stories, due to her shyness, Joan’s feeling is difficult to be empathized with. There is a big secret that Joan is hiding. From Joan's hints, the reader can guess what the big secret is. Although there are times when the story feels boring because there are too many Joan's complaints about her life, but, apparently, towards the end of the story, the big secret is brilliantly revealed, and the climax is at the end of the story, which makes the story end impressively.
