As with her bestselling The Ten-Year Nap, Wolitzer tackles another riveting, relevant issue for women's lives. When the new drama teacher chooses to stage the Greek play Lysistrata—in which women swear off sex to stop a war—a similar spell affects the high school community, forcing everyone to look at their sexual selves in new light.
Meg Wolitzer is the author of eight previous novels, including The Ten-Year Nap, The Position, and The Wife.
- Think about the women in the novel. Each of them reacts to the loss of desire in a different way. How does each woman's reaction reflect the stage of life she is in? Which woman do you think is the most changed at the end of the novel?
