As Susy explains, "We should really, in a way, help more than we should hamper each other. We both know the ropes so well; what one of us didn't see the other might, in the way of opportunities, I mean. And then we should be a novelty as married people. We're both rather unusually popular, why not be frank? And it's such a blessing for dinner-givers to be able to count on a couple of whom neither one is a blank."
The other part of the plan is that if either one of them meets someone who can advance them socially, they're each free to dissolve the marriage. How their plan unfolds is a comedy of Eros that will charm all fans of Wharton's work.
"As Wharton tells [the] story, the sharp irony of both her prose and her characters bleeds into pools of true feeling." (Kirkus Reviews)
"There are only three or four American novelists who can be thought of as 'major' and Edith Wharton is one." (Gore Vidal)
