The Uncoupling by Meg Wolitzer

When the new drama teacher chooses “Lysistrata” for the school play, the women of the town find themselves suddenly and completely uninterested in sex.

The Uncoupling was a quick read, but not a very satisfying one. The premise was too gimmicky and the insights into love and romance felt perfunctory. I couldn’t really relate to the characters, who felt generically suburban as opposed to individually human.
