I was interested in this because Memoirs of an Ex-Prom Queen was a book I found on my mother's shelves back in the day. It is considered a feminist classic. I was a little young when I read it and it seemed remarkably frank.

Sadly, Menage is a terrible book with wealthy bored characters - who cares! Dated and sexist as well.

You have to read this as a satire of rich, spoiled Americans and refrain from wanting it shake sense into the characters ( )

Interesting quick read about a progressive? marriage or something like it, in which a wealthy husband and wife take in a celebrated Eastern European expat writer in the hopes that they will "learn how to live". The relationships in the book are so off the wall, but I found it pretty fascinating that they could be so blase about their infidelities (or lack thereof). Complex, really rich writing, and crazy bored over-educated rich people...what's not to like? ( )
