With more than four million copies sold, Wifey is Judy Blume's hilarious, moving tale of a woman who trades in her conventional wifely duties for her wildest fantasies-and learns a lot about life along the way.

Sandy Pressman is a nice suburban wife whose boredom is getting the best of her. She could be making friends at the club, like her husband keeps encouraging her to do.

Or working on her golf game.

Or getting her hair done.

But for some reason, these things don't interest her as much as the naked man on the motorcycle...

User Review  - Kristine Finocchario - Goodreads

This was not necessarily my favorite book, and it had some odd ball moments, but overall was captivating and interesting. I loved Blume's introduction, and keeping in mind that this novel was written in 1978, I feel that it is really interesting. Very Judy Blume. Enjoyed reading it. Read full review
