Meg Wolitzer's Novel: The Uncoupling

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Meg Wolitzer talks about her latest novel, The Uncoupling. After Stellar Plains High School chooses to put on the play Lysistrata—the comedy by Aristophanes about women who stop having sex with men in order to end a war—a strange spell seems to be cast over the women throughout the school community. One by one healthy, normal women and teenage girls turn away from their husbands and boyfriends in the bedroom, for reasons they don't really understand.
