Table of Contents
What comes after chick-lit? Mum-lit, perhaps – but tales of hyper-active kids, moribund marriages and the career opportunities that got away will seldom match Wolitzer’s wit, bite and schmaltz-free sympathy,This one shouldn’t be only for chicks. It’s for everyone. It asks far-reaching questions about the place of women in society and within the family unit, but it asks also whether life has been fair to men,The latest novel from the excellent Meg Wolitzer presents four New York mothers emerging from a decade in babyland… a wonderful study of muddy equivocation, a hilarious yet compassionate examination of the primordial slime and the modern woman,Terrific… Wolitzer’s novels have always been exemplars of the motto that the personal is political. [Offers] many pleasing, surprising contrasts,It made me think about a woman’s eternal problem of balancing the love she has for her children with what to do when they finally leave home. A serious, meaty read,Her books have this peculiar knack of being both very funny and uncomfortable, and her dissection of marital relationships is second to none,Wolitzer is as precise and rigorous an observer of social status as Tom Wolfe; she is as incisive and pitiless and clear-eyed a chronicler of female-male tandems as Philip Roth or John Updike.,Wolitzer perfectly captures her women's resolve in the face of a dizzying array of conflicting loyalties.,Concerned mothers are talking about a new novel, The Ten Year Nap by Meg Wolitzer,Her best novel to date… Writing with candour and humour, Wolitzer captures the neuroses of a rarefied mommy elite.,Wolitzer is wickedly, terrifically funny – a true delight,This might well make you see work in a new light,Smart and clever…Wolitzer could describe paint drying and make it funny, but there are hard questions posed in her portrait of these fortysomething urban females

The Ten Year Nap is about 4 friends who were raised hearing the feminism message, "As a w...
I wish I could say I didn't like this book just because I built it up in my head too much while waiting for the other 20 library holds before me, but I'm sure this isn't the only reason. The moms in this book are a world apart from the moms I associate with, and maybe I'd like this book more in a...
