An excellent snapshot of a specific time and place (upper middle class New York City in the late 50s, early 60s), with a quality of writing that makes it age gracefully. Overlook the time-specific prices and slang and you could easily place this today.

Interesting read. One thing that I do find that still holds true is the frustration that naturally builds in a relationship. Very little that I can actually relate to in this book, as I've never been the housewife of a rich man where my primary function is to make him look good. It's a good reminder of how far the woman's movement has come and how many more choices we have nowadays.

The other thing about this book is that I had to constantly remind myself that the price amounts related to its publication date...
