Phyllis Raphael

They Got What They Wanted

Phyllis Raphael describes the disintegration of a New York marriage fortified with all the chic labels of the past decade... This is a new novel cum textbook, like Joan Didion's Play It As It Lays, which appears to be the contemporary woman novelist's forte, describing the feminine growing and killing pains associated with a marriage break up. An excellent new novel... Brilliant.
