The Uncoupling

Enchanted. “Comfort was the best thing, and maybe the worst.” (p.182) I smiled often at sentences like that one as I read Meg Wolitzer’s latest novel, The Uncoupling. After a new drama teacher selects Lysistrata as the next play for the high school, discomfort invades the suburban community of Stellar Plains, New Jersey. A spell was cast over the community, and the women in town cease physical relations with men, to the discomfort of all. This imaginative novel is quick to read, and many readers will find it entertaining. I was enchanted from beginning to end.

Rating: Four-star (Highly Recommended)
