Waiting on Wednesday: The Uncoupling by Meg Wolitzer

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Description

As with her bestselling The Ten-Year Nap, Wolitzer tackles another riveting, relevant issue for women's lives. When the new drama teacher chooses to stage the Greek play Lysistrata—in which women swear off sex to stop a war—a similar spell affects the high school community, forcing everyone to look at their sexual selves in new light.

About the Author

Meg Wolitzer is the author of eight previous novels, including The Ten-Year Nap, The Position, and The Wife.
