Aspera, at 40, is dissatisfied with her husband and her life. Their communication is not good, both acting off assumptions and not willing to be clear about what they really think or want. Three other friends with whom she meets are also dissatisfied. Aspera takes a lover. Do any of these women do anything other than sit around and complain about their lives?

I will tell you about Anna Karenina, and the predominance of sexual love in 19th Century fiction, and its growing unreality to us who have no real condemnation in our hearts any longer for adultery as such. But Tolstoy hoists all his books on that support. Take it away, say, no, it doesn't offend me that AK should copulate with Vronsky, and what remains?...Put yourself that question on the Steppes with the owls hooting and a melancholy wolf slinking behind the everlasting birch trees." --Virginia Woolf to Vita Sackville-West, 13 April 1926
