Here is my Literary Wives page listing all the past reads/reviews, as well as the cohosts who are currently on hiatus.
This is an online book discussion group that analyzes books with regard to the following question:
To Fife, it seems that "theft, possession, [and] recompense" are the "irreducible components of marriage." These thoughts came to her as she considered the fact of Ernest's continuing affair with Martha Gellhorn as her possible "undoing." Even Hadley noted that Ernest seemingly displayed "two personalities" as if he were actually "two different men." If loyalty is a characteristic of being a 'wife,' Fife certainly excels in that department: I would go so far as to say her attempt to retain Ernest bordered on obsession.
As Wood states in the Afterword:
