Literary Giants: The Wife

Joan Castelman is en route to Finland to watch her husband win the Helsinki Prize when she decides to leave him. What follows is Joan's recollection of their marriage, his career, and her fading dreams. Starting with the beginning of the couple's professor-student relationships she continues through to the present, stacking up the unspoken regrets that lead to Helsinki. The story of what Joan sacrifices to support her husband and his illustrious career is just as astounding. Complete with a staggering twist ending, this is not one to miss.
