The Good Wife

14Mar09

I just finished Stewart O’Nan’s novel, The Good Wife, which we are discussing for March’s book club.  I haven’t read any of Stewart O’Nan’s novels, but he’s quite prolific, and very well regarded.

I can be a book snob…that is definitely a fact known to most everyone. However, sometime recently, I rationalized that even book snobs need a break every now and again.  As a result of this rationalization, I picked up The Starter Wife by Gigi Levangie Grazer through paperbackswap.com, figuring, I didn’t have to feel guilty about […]
