   schema:reviewBody ""Meet the Wife is a book of metamorphoses, of journeys that o'erleap all frontiers, most especially that between life and death, of contemporary adventures that suddenly assume mythic proportions." "Accept Clive Sinclair's invitation and you will embark upon an expedition led by none other than Odysseus, still desperately seeking Penelope. His reluctant amanuensis is a fat reporter called Pumpkin, who is transformed from a dictator's lapdog into a Homeric bard, one who literally writes out of his skin." "Accept this invitation and you will also cross paths with the Lone Ranger, and Wyatt Earp, the most famous lawman of them all. And meet the latter's voluptuous wife, whose portrait overleaf may or may not be a true likeness. Mrs. Earp also happens to be the double of someone's else missing spouse, a coincidence that raises deadly questions about identity. And not only about identity. In the world you are about to enter, where no surface remains static for long, you'll never be sure whether to laugh or cry for help."--Jacket." ;
