This is one out of the box!
An absolutely fascinating book requiring close attention from the reader. It tells the story of a couple, whose marriage was one of true minds until the husband, Howard, gets drawn back into his fundamentalist Jewish heritage after years of liberalism, when his son spends some time in Israel. His quiet, non-Jewish wife Anne finds herself leading a book discussion group which becomes highly popular with film directors, producers, screenwriters etc. As her marriage falls apart Anne draws on literature to address issues involved in the conflict between her and her husband. Nothing is private in Hollywood and Howard is kept up to date with what goes on in the group.
All kinds of issues, attitudes, philosophies are touched on though without detracting from the movement of the plot.
Has a very satisfying ending.
