Alison Lurie's writing is such a joy to read! She can make me care about less-than-admirable characters and their mundane lives. And she totally nails academic life at an institute of higher education, "Corinth University" (a not very well disguised Cornell) which is part of the treat for former Ithacans such as me. I found myself rooting for the misbehavers to get their comeuppance, and for the long-suffering spouses to get their day in the sun. I won't give away the ending, other to say that I was kept guessing until the end. Highly recommended!
Really good read - or listen! Things do have a way of turning out when married couples are finally honest. The narrarater has a very easy to listen to voice and does a great job at doing different accents - love the southerness of Delia Delaney - the hot temptress!
