I found the subject matter disagreeable and the style stilted. I just couldn't get into it and found it quite unpleasant overall, so I gave up... I was surprised since I'd enjoyed "Foreign Affairs".

De nombreuses fautes de frappe.
Cela n'enlève cependant rien à la qualité de l'œuvre. Je recommande également le recueil de nouvelles Women and Ghosts

HASH(0x9c7d89a8) étoiles sur 5 Still great after all these years 30 mars 2004
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Poche
This novel seems to be out of print again and is hard to find even in second hand stores. This is a shame because the breakup of the marriage of the prim professor Brian and his wife Erica is a fine and subtly humorous novel. The novel is set in the Vietnam era as a background to the campus setting, but it is also is part of the atmosphere that leads to a seachange in the lives of all the characters.
Brian passively allows himself to be drawn into an cheesy, self serving affair with a nubile student. One of the novels digs at colleges of the sixties is that the girl is barely literate, which is apparently no impediment to being a graduate student.
Erica, who has been a demure and dutiful wife has an intellect as sharp as her professor husband She is less than happy with the situation, but is determined to put Brain's feet to the fire on this issue. She also finds that with Brian out of the house she is able to deal with the many annoyances imposed on her by her prissy spouse, such as his insistence that she does not work on campus.
Less pleasant are her two teen children who are cleverly likened to the South Vietnamese of the day, dependant for aid on people they resent and her weedy, weird college friend Sandy, the only male available to spend time with her. Lurie's description of events are smart, satirical and just plain funny. Most importantly this is novel about change and the need and the inevitablity of moving forward.

HASH(0x9c7d8ce4) étoiles sur 5 Lurie at Her Best 13 novembre 2013
Par Eric Maroney - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
I suppose if one must read one Alison Lurie book, it would be The War Between the Tates.

As I read more and more of her work, I realize that she can only write with great skill about academics or writers or both and their wives. In The War Between the Tates she most fully realizes all the other versions of this theme she has worked out in novels and short stories.

Lurie appears to be one of those literal writers who must draw upon her real life in order to create. Her imaginative capacity is severely impaired. Just look at the thin collection of stories, promisingly titled Women and Ghosts. She writes these with a singular lack of flair or talent. It is as if the writer of Tates and the teller of ghost stories are two different writers.

This does not mean that one should not read and enjoy The War Between the Tates. It has gorgeously written, penetrating prose, which work to examine all the painstaking elements of a marriage coming apart in the throes of the counter-culture.

For Cornell people it is a special treat, since Cornith University is so clearly Cornell University. Even over forty years later the novel still captures the atmosphere and shades of the place with Lurie taught for many years.

HASH(0x9c7d8e34) étoiles sur 5 An Enjoyable Novel From A Gifted Writer 23 janvier 2015
Par alanhouston - Publié sur
Achat vérifié
Alison Lurie is a great writer whose "War Between the Tates" had a very high profile in the 1970's when it was made into a movie. It is a funny and sad story of a professor at Cornell University and his wife in about 1970, when the 1950's values of the faculty came up against the "Peace Now" and "Free Love" ethos of Ivy League students of that time.

The husband and wife both attended Harvard, but he became an Ivy League professor and she is "just a housewife". As their marriage unravels under the destruction caused by the husband's affair with a young graduate student, the wife has the opportunity to take control of her life.

For anyone who has worked at a university, the story of a middle-age professor being involved with a student is an ongoing cliche. The faculty wives see that cheating professor's wife as a victim, a middle-aged woman has been betrayed, and who now must restart her life with little or no prospects for professional or romantic success.

Alison Lurie shows us another possibility: The betrayal leads to a new beginning. The woman whose marriage is falling apart finds out that she is both smarter and tougher than her husband, and she learns that she is attractive both to prospective employers and to a man who appreciates her far more than her husband does.

Lurie has created a memorable portrait of both a marriage, and life at an American university in the early 1970's.
HASH(0x9c7d8e7c) étoiles sur 5 ...Lurie’s bid for the Updike-Cheever-Yates club is an amusing, evocative account of the obliteration of a New England marriage 27 mai 2016

Format: Broché
Alison Lurie’s bid for the Updike-Cheever-Yates club is an amusing, evocative account of the obliteration of a New England marriage. Brian Tate works as a political science professor at the fictitious Corinth University. His wife Erica is a stay-at-home mom to two horrid teenagers, who spends her time as the “wifey,” making sure that his shirts are ironed, his dinner is cooked and his children are raised. Think Mr. Banks if he one day decided to have an affair with a hippie student named Wendy. That is how THE WAR BETWEEN THE TATES starts, with Erica discovering that her husband is having an affair with a flighty free-spirited grad student from the psychology department. The book covers over a year, beginning in March of 1968, a cold New England that sees new developments developing around the farm where the Tates live, as well as a new encroachment when Erica discovers a letter from Wendy to Brian. The rest of the novel is a beautiful balance between campus politics, the rise of alternative education and sex after forty. Lurie paints with Updike’s brush, with clever turns of phrase and unflattering, though probably in the end realistic, characterizations of the Tate children, an overzealous veterinarian and even Wendy herself, whose every dirty foot and blowsy pound is chronicled as a personal detriment. I remember when I was younger there was an Erma Bombeck book illustrated by Bil Keane. It was from around this time and as I read the Tates back and forth that most un-similar book rattled around in my head. JUST WAIT TILL YOU HAVE CHILDREN OF YOUR OWN it was called. The things we think of.

HASH(0x9c7e12d0) étoiles sur 5 Well-drawn characters; entertaining novel set in academia 13 juillet 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
The first half of this book shows a horribly plausible example of a middle aged marriage falling apart at the seams, due to chance happenings. The psychology of the husband, Brian Tate, is thoroughly and sympathetically examined - he looks like a success, but his own self-view is very different. This, and the great feeling of the palce and period (1969) are the strengths of this novel.
Its weaknesses are that it gets less convincing towards the end, and the author's rather simplistic femanism gets the better of her, particularly when pontificating on male relationships.
Overall, not one of her best, but still a good read.
