Synopses & Reviews
With more than four million copies sold, Wifey is Judy Blume's hilarious, moving tale of a woman who trades in her conventional wifely duties for her wildest fantasies-and learns a lot about life along the way.
Sandy Pressman is a nice suburban wife whose boredom is getting the best of her. She could be making friends at the club, like her husband keeps encouraging her to do.
Or working on her golf game.
Or getting her hair done.
But for some reason, these things don't interest her as much as the naked man on the motorcycle...
"If Mrs. Blume's chatty, vernacular style results in quick, digestible reading, her characters' penchant for psychobabble makes the reader feel as though he were paging through the latest self-help text." Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
"One for the grown-ups!...[P]athos, slapstick, romance....My children have been addicted to her for years now one sees why." Los Angeles Times
This classic is as relevant today as ever. Its heroine, Sandy Pressman--a very nice wife whose boredom is getting the best of her--became the touchstone for a whole generation, and the story of how she trades in her conventional wifely duties for her wildest secret fantasies is unforgettable.
Wifey is tired of chicken on Wednesdays and sex on Saturdays.
This morning the mysterious motorcycle flasher revealed himself to Wifey and brought her frustrations into rigid focus!
Wifey sees her wildest fantasies taking flight, and Wifey has an itchy and uncontrollable urge to catch up to them!
