Description

An Amazon Best Book of the Month, August 2013: Liane Moriary is probably doomed to be forever labeled a writer of “chick
lit.” But despite its dopey name, her new novel, The Husband’s Secret, is better described as a comedy of manners and
one with a serious undertone. As in her previous books, most successfully What Alice Forgot, Moriarty here wittily and
observantly chronicles the life of middle aged, middle class Australian women, suburbanites who grapple with prosaic
issues like marital fidelity and torturous ones like moral guilt and responsibility. You can’t help but laugh along with
the small observations--“And there was poor little Rob, a teenage boy clumsily trying to make everything right, all
false smiles and cheery lies. No wonder he became a real estate agent.” But it’s the big ones--Can good people do very,
very bad things, and what, exactly, are we responsible for, and for how long?--that will make you think. This is a
deceptively rich novel that transcends its era and place at the same time that it celebrates same. --Sara Nelson
