I wish I could turn off my lit crtic. Here's a Silicoon Valley tale of marraige strained by a husband's startup ambitions.

Lena has quit her fulfilling job to stay home with the ailing baby while he husband develops his medical invention.

Poor Lena: an old flame reignites marital dissatisfaction just as her hated uncle funds the noble project.

Where's the story arc? Lena is angry and selfish from start to finish. Older women and her loving men are consistently tolerant of Lena's tantrums.

Plenty of well-decorated Atherton homes and startup financing details. Perhaps a good pool-read. But I don't have a pool.

"An expansive novel (with a lamentably fussy title) about the intricate economies of the American marriage."
