Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Lehr turns out a frothy escape novel that examines a cross-section of contemporary Los Angeles divorcées who become fast friends despite themselves. There's Diane, a mom of two whose husband's gambling led to bankruptcy and divorce. Then there's Lana, the former wife of a Hollywood heartthrob whose public breakup became a national punch line and led her to change her name and find work at a furniture store. Rounding out the cast is sweet-as-sugar Bonnie, a former homecoming queen now saddled with two children and an overbearing husband, and icy divorce attorney Annette, whose husband left her for another man. After a chance encounter in Lana's furniture store, Diane discovers Annette is living in the house she lost, and Bonnie has a mini-breakdown while choosing a coffee table; the four eventually find themselves looking to each other for support, insight and favors. Although occasionally veering toward the implausible or clichéd—such as when Lana spurns her ex on national television—Lehr keeps the plot moving with madcap hijinks and tender moments. (Mar.)

Review

"A celebration of second acts wrapped up in a humorous homage to the power of friendship." -- Anna Huffington, bestselling author of On Becoming Fearless

"A hopeful romp of sex, humor and friendship." -- Bruce Bauman, author of And the Word Was

"Leslie Lehr is a truth teller - a rare writer who untangles the realities of women's lives without flinching, while making you laugh, cry, and nod in understanding with every word." -- Leslie Morgan Steiner, editor, Mommy Wars and Washington Post Columnist

"Like Olivia Goldsmith before her, Leslie Lehr has done the impossible: She's made divorce into a winning, funny, and inspiring activity, if one fraught with the sadness of mistakes made and lives changed. Wife Goes On isn't fictionalized self-help or mundane chick-lit; it's about loving, escaping, and living again, the hard road to finding relevance... and the joy found in occasionally running over every rut and divot in that very same road. Just like in real life." -- Tod Goldberg, author of Simplify, Living Dead Girl, and Fake Liar Cheat

"Wife Goes On is a tantalizing romp through the world of the newly divorced featuring a group of women who are vulnerable, smart, resourceful, wonderfully resilient, and wickedly funny. Anyone who's been through a bad breakup will recognize the heartaches and triumphs that rise from these pages." -- Hope Edelman, bestselling author of Motherless Mothers
