For a group of four New York friends, the past decade has been largely defined by marriage and motherhood. Educated and reared to believe that they would conquer the world, they then left prestigious jobs to stay home with their babies. What was meant to be a temporary leave of absence has lasted a decade. Now, at age forty, with the halcyon days of young motherhood behind them and without professions to define them, Amy, Jill, Roberta, and Karen face a life that is not what they were brought up to expect but seems to be the one they have chosen. But when Amy meets someone who seems to have fulfilled the classic women's dream of having it all--work, love, family--without having to give anything up, a lifetime's worth of concerns, both practical and existential, opens up. As her obsession with this woman's bustling life grows, it forces the four friends to confront the choices they've made--until a series of startling events shatters the peace and, for some of them, changes the landscape entirely.… (mais)

Like the other of her books I've read, this one is perceptive and occasionally offers just the absolute most perfect way of describing something. It kept me engaged, though really there's not a big huge engaging plot. Wolitzer writes about an art project one of the characters has begun in which she depicts in their old age women who died young. This book itself feels a bit like a gallery of portraits, though rather than dying young I suppose they've settled young on losing their momentum in the world as their own beings (rather than as mothers). This one didn't knock my socks off, but I liked it, and this makes three by Wolitzer in rapid succession for me, and all of them very solid books. ( )

The story seemed to drag in a lot of places telling many stories at the same time. Once I was invested in the stories I felt compelled to finish. In the end it was an enjoyable read but not one I would rush out to read. ( )

Serviceable, a little boring. The Karen Yip character deserved better. ( )

A group of four friends have left their professional careers to take care of their children as stay-at-home mothers. This all sounded great in the beginning, but now, ten years later, they are feeling bored with volunteer activities and find that living on one income - even a large one - is not so easy in New York City when you're trying to keep up with the rest of the private school parents.

When one of the women finds a woman who seemingly does have it all it forces the four women to confront the choices they've made and causes several of them to make radical changes in how they lead their lives. ( )

Drifty, sleepy novel about the lives of women whose children don't need full-time care anymore (it is called 'The Ten Year Nap'). I loved some details (I work with someone named Wilson, and wouldn't it be lovely if he had a Karen in his life) and I liked the gentleness that the author brought to her portraits (even the self-absorbed get their moments of human-ness). I expected not to love it; I can't even remember why I would have added this to my library list. But I did add it, and it was a pleasurable day's read. ( )
