As best I can recall, the film’s dialogue is mostly straight out of this book. Basically, because the dialogue is exactly like what my experiences with Lyme in attacks were, the panic portions and fear descriptions of the book were particualry interesting to me.

The characters her husband, his “classy” friends, the housekeeper, their children and neighbors are perfectly drawn, and the dialog Oh this book is just terrific. I am intrigued by Bettina regaining some “control” or sense of self as the book finishes.

Diary of a Mad Housewife

If you’ve seen the great movie adaptation of this which I watched originally in college because my love Frank Langella was in it as the above-mentioned shit heelyou’ll see this book was faithfully adapted. Pero la prosa de Kaufman lo compensa. She is very depressed and just barely holding it together with booze, nembutal, and an extra-marital affair. I love the period This is the kind of book that I have always envied for its style which I could never pull off.

Maybe it’s because a lot of what Tina deals with still hangs around in the present day, 50 years later. It might be a bit dated—I’d like to think women don’t do this anymore—but the story still reads as fresh. Oh this book is just terrific. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Feb 23, Leah rated it it was amazing. Todo el mundo alguna vez en la vida dice: While the story is a bit dated, there’s sti Take one part The Group, two parts Bell Jar, a half portion of voyeurism, a dash of bitters, and you have Diary of a Mad Housewife.


This story is wholly believable, and fantastically put together. The characters her husband, his “classy” friends, the housekeeper, their children and neighbors are perfectly drawn, and the dialogue is impeccable. So she quietly rebels by writing, by keeping this diary from September to February–and also by having an affair with a handsome, successful playwright who is a shit heel of a different cut.

However, I was fascinated by this book, and saw little feminism in it The film and book both get Five outta Five from ol’ Rob.

I love the period details, and at the same time I appreciate the timelessness of the narrator, Bettina Balser’s attempts to maneuver through life and keep her head above water.

When we talk about micro-aggressions today, some immediately roll their eyes and I’ll admit the conversation can get a little ridiculous at times. This is a well written classic which gave readers insight into the mind of well educated housewives.

I was probably 17 or 18 at the most and I wonder how much of it just went over my head. Sue Kaufman was a fine and funny writer and Desquiciad thoroughly enjoyed my second go-round with this, her third novel. I don’t want to ruin it, though this isn’t really that kind of book, but basically, everything just gets tied up in a far too terrific way. Also pretty sure I’ll be semi-unironically wearing my “Feminist Icon” t-shirt to work tomorrow because you know what’s real?

While the story is a bit dated, there’s still enough truth in Tina’s challenges and in the asinine behavior of her husband to make it somewhat relevant cqsa today. Sep 03, Sarah Suchon rated it really liked it.

The book was published inright before feminism would go mainstream and save a lot of upper middle-class white women from Bettina’s fate, so everyone keep that in mi A wonderfully sardonic look at the state of late twentieth-century marriage as seen through the eyes of Bettina Balser, desquicida smart, upper-middle class housewife living in Upper West Side Manhattan with her two young daughters, a dog, a maid, and her husband – a sniveling, controlling, insufferable social climber named Jonathan.

I was also surprised and intrigued by the ending, and have spent time wondering how such an ending was received at the time of publication Diary of a Mad Housewife ‘s humor and insight are as alive and pertinent today as they were yesterday, and will charm and disarm men and women of any generation.
