One For The Ladies: The Uncoupling by Meg Wolitzer

Today I received Penguin Group Canada's monthly e-newsletter and was intrigued when I read about The Uncoupling by Meg Wolitzer.

Great cover!

It is about a group of women in a high school community who have lost interest in their husbands and boyfriends in the bedroom. A "spell has been cast" after the new drama teacher chose Lysistrata (the comedy by Aristophanes in which women stop having sex with men in order to end a war) for the school play. 

The loss of passion affects both  the women and their men who are offended and confused.

I've bumped this book to the top of my list.  It sounds really interesting and after hearing about it I wanted to learn more. I found a great Globe & Mail review. I like the headline "Sexless in Suburbia".

I'm going to start The Uncoupling tonight. Is anyone else planning on reading this one?
