private life. Jane Smiley. 2010. ISBN 9781400040605.  A fictional account of marriage in the 1880- 1950s from the point of view of the wife.  The wife, Margaret is a “saint” and the husband “Andrew” is a brilliant fool.  Not my normal cup of tea, but I found my self pulled through the book by the authors clear and thoughtful prose. The author is well known for her Pulitzer prize and this one continues the good work.
