Meg Wolitzer, "The Ten-Year Nap"
Publisher: Riverhead Hardcover | ISBN: 1594489785 | edition 2008 | PDF | 570 pages | 1,6 mb
In her latest novel, Wolitzer (The Wife; etc.) takes a close look at the opt out generation: her cast of primary characters have all abandoned promising careers (in art, law and academia) in favor of full-time motherhood. When their children were babies, that decision was defensible to themselves and others; 10 years on, all of these women, whose interconnected stories merge during their regular breakfasts at a Manhattan restaurant, harbor hidden doubts.
