Description (copied from publisher's email):
Isolde Brilliant used to have a life she recognized. She was a successful hedge fund manager, she had a devoted, if neurotic, husband, and a perfectly acceptable apartment in downtown Manhattan. But once Izzy’s wish to become a mother finally comes true, she is laid off from her job, and her old world falls by the wayside. Although she’s surprised by motherhood’s hidden pleasures—who knew she would actually like changing diapers?—her marriage is on shaky ground and she feels lost.
As Izzy ponders her next move, her best friend announces that she is leaving her husband. Balancing the demands of marriage and motherhood for seven years has turned her into a nag, a shrew . . . an all-out bitch. It’s unavoidable. It isn’t her fault. It happens to every married woman with a baby. Izzy tries to avoid a similar fate, but as her sex life with her husband rapidly declines and her fantasies involve becoming a widow, she begins to wonder if there might be some inescapable grain of truth in her friend’s discouraging theory.
Full of the poignancy and hilarity that readers have come to expect from Jennifer Belle, The Seven Year Bitch is a smart and provocative novel about marriage, motherhood, and discovering that the life you have is exactly the one you wanted.
