Summary, etc.:
Autopsy of a boring wife tells the hysterically funny and ultimately moving tale of 48-year-old Diane, whose husband has left her for another woman because, he says, she bores him. Diane takes the charge to heart and careers along a ribald, merciless, and highly entertaining journey of breakdown, vulnerability, and the destruction of trust. Diane's intimately personal odyssey is an astute commentary on the high stakes of love, the friendship of women, and the curious institution of marriage in the 21st century. Nothing is certain but for your falling in love with Diane in this brisk, sometimes calamitous and often outrageous story of recovery. It is a wonderfully engaging novel of the pitfalls and missteps of an anything-but-boring life that could be any of our.
