(From the publisher):
Whether it is in the title story, THE WAYWARD WIFE, in which a young woman tries to marry into high society at any cost, or CRIME AT THE TENNIS CLUB, which tells of the unnecessary murder of a half-mad old woman, or the six remaining stories, Alberto Moravia explores the heights and depths of human emotion. He shows once again his brilliance and skill in the portrayal of character, especially in sex relationships, and in the interplay of personalities between man and woman.
Alberto Moravia is a modern master of psychological fiction. his stories, with their sexual undertones and bittersweet humor, make fascinating reading and are another literary triumph for one of the world's greatest contemporary authors.
