Here are my past Literary Wives reviews.
residential camps. But those were only
one to two weeks in duration.
She is full-breasted, but otherwise unremarkable. This is her peak, I think, rather ungenerously.
She will never be this beautiful again. (14)
Walking in Central Park naked.
Is that a crime?
Yes. It is, in fact.
In Vermont it's not.
Yes. You can be naked. You just can't be obscene.
What's the difference? (7)
and he moves up and over the hilly terrain, his eyes straight ahead,
oblivious to the people who gasp when they come around a corner to find him
marching toward them. All that matters to him is the feel of his bare feet
of the soft lawn on her bare feet, surprisingly pleasant,
and then the feel of the slightly crunchy snow at the edges as she begins to walk. (253)

It was easy for me to feel empathy for Betsy. She was definitely between a rock and a hard place, in my opinion, as she realized her true feelings for Russell and Arthur. But I admired her 'balls' in choosing and being totally honest and open with Arthur. Another reason I could relate to her is her comment, "I'm just not good at being a girl." IMHO I believe Betsy (like me) tends to communicate in a very direct and blunt manner, similar to what many might consider to be more of a 'male' way of communicating. Arthur asks her the first time they meet, "Are you always this tough?" That made me smile since my husband has expressed his amazement at the way I communicate openly and honestly, unlike most females he's known.
I am excited about this one!
