As the wife of upwardly-mobile New York lawyer Jonathan Balser (Benjamin), Tina (Snodgress) is expected to fulfill his notion of the "perfect" hostess, gourmet cook, lover, and mother of their children. Jonathan is a man with an over-inflated view of himself, obsessed with his image and social status. His increasing demands upon Tina drive her to an affair with a young writer (Langella). But Tina soon learns that she cannot rely on any man to fill the emptiness she feels. Tina, like thousands of women across the country, is now ready to emerge as someone in control of her own life
Diary Of A Mad Housewife : a Novel by Sue Kaufman( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Made into a major motion picture that garnered an Oscar nomination for actress Carrie Snodgrass, Diary of a Mad Housewife is a classic of women's fiction that gave a wry voice to the nascent feminist stirrings of the 1960s and helped incite a revolution in the consciousness of a generation. When Bettina Balser begins to suspect that she is going mad, she starts a secret diary as a form of therapy and as an escape from the boredom and dissatisfaction she experiences as a 1960s housewife. Her fears pour onto the page: "Elevators, subways, bridges, tunnels, high places, low places, tightly enclosed spaces, boats, cars, planes, trains, crowds ..." Through her observations of herself and those around her, Bettina seeks to find meaning in her exceedingly dreary life. Her frank examinations lead to many changes, including an extramarital fling, and her voice touches a timeless nerve, resonating on many levels-from the ever-evolving feminist consciousness to the gnawing existential search that is universal. Diary of a Mad Housewife's humor and insight is as alive and pertinent today as yesterday, and will charm and disarm men and women of any generation
