Wifey by Judy Blume

Sandy is a bored 32-year-old housewife. Her children are at camp for the summer and her husband is just terribly predictable. A man from her past encourages her to make life a little more exciting, but dangerous.

If Wifey is at all accurate in depicting housewives of the 1970s, that is very unfortunate. The book is pretty much entirely about masturbation and sexual affairs. I suspect it’s one of the books that contributed a lot to Judy Blume’s (not always positive) reputation as an author. While the book does draw you into the story (possibly due to the train wreck value, possibly due to the talent of the author), it’s not a book I would really recommend reading.
