Book Summary of The Ten-Year Nap

For a group of four New York friends, the past ten years have been defined by marriage and motherhood. Educated to believe that they and their generation would conquer the world, they nonetheless left high-powered jobs to stay at home with their babies. What was intended as a temporary time-out has turned into a decade. Now at forty, with their kids growing up, Amy, Jill, Roberta and Karen wake up to a life and a future that is not what they intended. Illicit affairs, money problems, issues with children and husbands all rear their heads, as the friends wonder if it’s time for a change…

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

Susan March 31, 2008 review from Goodreads

I almost didn't agree to reviewing The Ten Year Nap by Meg Wolitzer because I was wary of the subject matter: stay at home mothers. I tend to get all prickly and weird around this topic because it is SO loaded and I realize that even though I have often BEEN at home during my children's lives, I...

Erika April 29, 2008 review from Goodreads

I wanted so much to give this book five stars. It was soooooo good for the first 300 pages, talking about the nuances of motherhood, feminism and women's worlds in the US as lived through four women who gather every week at a diner in New York City to talk about (in)fidelity, love, work, children...

Debby April 15, 2011 review from Goodreads

This isn't a book I would normally be drawn to read, but the title intrigued me. I decided to read it more for curiosity sake, knowing full well what I was getting into, as far as the feminist agenda goes. . The Ten Year Nap is about 4 friends who were raised hearing the feminism message, "As a w...

Angie June 28, 2008 review from Goodreads

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...

Rebecca June 22, 2008 review from Goodreads

This book is a perfect example of relativity. Looked at from a certain perspective, apparently, it is funny and sympathetic and a right on evaluation of modern motherhood. Looked at from another, there isn't a true note in it and all that humor and seeming sympathy are moot because its careless p...
