About the Book

WHAT DOES "WIFE" MEAN TODAY? It’s a fascinating question that’s been receiving huge media and reader attention, fuelled by Anne Kingston’s provocative, timely book, soon to be published in the U.S. Traversing the complex landscape of contemporary wifehood, Kingston combines broad-ranging research with her own insights and wit, providing a fresh perspective on being a married woman. From the elevation of the bride to a powerful consumer icon, through the recent romanticization of domesticity, and into the conflicted territory of wifely sexuality, The Meaning of Wife is constantly engaging and often surprising. A book that’s tailor-made for book clubs—even the cover provokes discussion—as well as lively chats over a glass of wine, The Meaning of Wife is changing the way we think about women, men and marriage.
