I feel like it was misleading in the beginning. Dec 22, Heather rated it liked it. I don’t want to ruin it, though this isn’t really that kind of book, but basically, everything just gets tied up in a far too terrific way.
It’s like a fantasy ending, the kind of resolution that people who happen to be in sometimes-contentious relationships no one I know, of course only dream of. If you’ve seen the great movie adaptation of this which I watched originally in college because my love Frank Langella was in it as the above-mentioned shit heelyou’ll see this book was faithfully adapted.
A wonderfully sardonic look at the state of late twentieth-century marriage as seen through the eyes of Bettina Balser, a smart, upper-middle class housewife dsquiciada in Upper West Side Manhattan with her two young daughters, a dog, a maid, and dee husband – a sniveling, controlling, insufferable social climber named Jonathan.
Desquicisda at their marriage with the sensibilities of the present day, it is easy to see that Bettina is being emotionally abused and she ends up rebelling in different ways. Feb 23, Leah rated it it was amazing.

This book made me angry and uppity. While the story is a desquociada dated, there’s still enough truth in Tina’s challenges and in the asinine behavior of her husband to make it somewhat relevant for today. I think I read it and my assessment afterwards was along the lines of “Oh. Except for the fact that my husband is Not a mysoginist sexist pig, like the hubby in this book is,and the lack of an affair, lol, Bettina’s life is a lot like mine was a few years ago, when the Lyme panic almost had me house bound and agorophobic and everything else.
Diary of a Mad Housewife
He was a lovable idiologest in the beginning of their relationship but then he becomes wealthier and loses touch with everything he once was. Then you go to being astounded at the husband. I was probably 17 or 18 at the most and I wonder how much of it just went over my head.
Thanks for telling us about the problem. The film’s ending dixrio probably more realistic, but the novel is satisfying and both are wickedly funny. Aja enjoyed the descriptions of the protagonist’s neuroses as well as her backstory. I like Kaufman’s understated style.
Published March 28th by Seal Press first published December 31st Nov 17, Brooke rated it it was amazing. While the first half is a little slow, the pace picks up considerably and, by the midway point, I couldn’t put this book down.
She died in Manhattan inat the age of 50, after a long illness. Literarily, the writing is beautiful, with rich details and a fast moving plotline, although “nothing much” happens I was also surprised and intrigued by the ending, and have spent time wondering how such an ending was received at the time of publication The pop culture references, tropes, and some characters are rather dated. Dec 23, Daysleeper rated it it was amazing.
The prose is so light and airy and flows so beautifully I love the period details, and at the same time I appreciate the timelessness of the narrator, Bettina Balser’s attempts to maneuver through life and keep her head above water.
Also pretty sure I’ll be semi-unironically wearing my “Feminist Icon” t-shirt to work tomorrow because you know what’s real? Pese a ello, me quedo con buen recuerdo del libro, la historia me ha parecido buena. This is amq well written classic which gave readers insight into the mind of well educated housewives. Pries the dirty tobacco tin lid off marriage and contempt in an amusing way.
The film and book both get Five outta Five from ol’ Rob.

This is the kind of book that I have always envied for its style which I could never pull off. Ds received her degree from Vassar College in THis book was interesting to me in three ways. And I found it easier to root for Tina in the book–she’s neurotic, but wryly aware of it. Betinna Balser, called “teen” by her husband, a disappointed liberal-turned frantic capitalist, begins a secret diary as a means of hanging on to the shreds desquicada her sanity in this domestic comedy.
I could give my left arm to fe the journal entries of Silvie or Liz, 20 years later. Paperbackpages. Basically, because the dialogue is exactly like what my experiences with Lyme anxiety attacks were, the panic portions and fear diaruo of the book were particualry interesting to me.
My best description would be “controlled stream of consciousness. However, I like where the author ended up taking the story and how it explored the way human relationships affect each other and influence opinions, perspectives, and self image.
