Synopsis: Originally published in 1974, a humorous novel set against an American academic background, telling of how a professor’s stable relationship and family life comes apart when he embarks upon an ill-advised affair with a female student. By the author of Real People, Only Children and Foreign Affairs.
Internationally revered, bestselling, Pulitzer Prize-winning author’s remarkable novel of domestic strife. “We sometimes speak of the Civil War as “The War Between the States” -emphasizing the complex and painful, but in many ways comic, nature of any struggle involving any combatants who are already joined together by deep bonds. The four-way conflict between Brian and Erica Tate and their two adolescent children is this sort of civil war-the sort that nobody wins.”
