The New York Times bestselling novel that woke up critics, book clubs, and women everywhere.
For a group of four New York friends the past decade has been defined largely by marriage and motherhood, but it wasnâ't always that way. Growing up, they had been told that their generation would be different. And for a while this was true. They went to good colleges, and began high-powered careers. But after marriage and babies, for a variety of reasons, they decided to stay home, temporarily, to raise their children. Now, ten years later, they are still at home, unsure how they came to inhabit lives so different from the ones they expectedâ?until a new series of events begins to change the landscape of their lives yet again, in ways they couldnâ't have predicted.
Written in Meg Wolitzerâ's inimitable, glittering style, The Ten-Year Nap is wickedly observant, knowing, provocative, surprising, and always entertaining, as it explores the lives of its women with candor, wit, and generosity.
Four female friends try to understand their lives and choices after they leave behind their jobs (and identities) in order to raise their children in this sharp and humorous take on the modern state of the feminist dream.
