Abstract:

Returning to the turf of his best-selling The War of the Roses, Warren Adler explores the explosive consequences of another discordant marriage. Jenny, a young woman of traditional values, is seduced from her midwestern environment by Larry, an attractive, sexy, and ambitious Manhattan advertising executive who has fantasized about marrying the perfect housewife. The newlyweds rent an apartment in a converted brownstone with four other units that house a cast of.

Eccentric neighbors who are all trying to survive, emotionally and financially, in the pressure cooker of the Manhattan lifestyle. Warned about the perils of New York, Jenny is cautioned by her domineering and paranoid husband to keep away from any involvement with the neighbors and to devote herself completely to his needs. But she soon finds herself isolated, lonely, and unable to suppress her natural inclination toward generosity and socialization. Her subsequent.

Entanglement in the lives of the neighbors and her growing disillusion with her tyrannical husband leads Jenny to the realization of her entrapment, and to a spine-tingling conclusion as she cries to cope with shockingly unfamiliar events and still keep her values intact. In The Housewife Blues, Warren Adler has created a story of unforgettable characters, as well as a suspenseful plot that moves like lightning to an inevitable and unexpected climax.
