After many years, this best-selling novel of Manhattan ennui is finally back in print. When Bettina Balser begins to suspect that she is going mad, she starts a secret diary as a form of therapy and escape. Her fears pour onto the page: Elevators, subways, bridges, tunnels, high places, low places, tightly enclosed spaces, boats, cars, planes, trains, crowds.
Through her observations of herself and those around her, Bettina seeks meaning in her exceedingly dreary life. Her frank examinations lead to many changes, including an extramarital fling, and her voice touches a timeless nerve, resonating on many levels–from the ever-evolving feminist consciousness to the gnawing existential search that is universal.
Diary of a Mad Housewife ‘s humor and insight are as alive and pertinent today as they were yesterday, and will charm and disarm men and women of any generation.

Lists with This Book. Mar 25, Oriana rated it really liked it Shelves: Oh this book is just terrific. The prose is so light and airy and flows so beautifully Written in the late ’60s, re-released a few years ago by Thunder’s Mouth, this is the story of Bettina Balser, an upper-middle-class housewife who is freaking out about the stifling life she finds herself in the thick of.
The fasa her husband, his “classy” friends, the housekeeper, their children and neighbors are perfectly drawn, and the dialog Oh this book is just terrific. The aja her husband, his “classy” friends, the housekeeper, their children and neighbors are perfectly drawn, and the dialogue is impeccable. This story is wholly believable, and fantastically put together. You know, this book has really stuck in my head since I recently finished it.
And I’m actually pretty unhappy in retrospect about the ending. I don’t want to ruin it, though this isn’t really that kind of book, but basically, everything just gets tied up in a far too terrific way. Bettina and her husband have been in a silent, seething fight for months, the kind of fight that encompases their entire lives, really, where neither would even consider backing down, because csaa would be anathema to even think that they might be at fault.
And but then there’s this crazy climax scene where finally everything comes out, kind of, and hubby just breaks down. Not only does he back down, but he completely puts the whole thing on himself, takes responsibility for all the awfulness that they’ve both been going through. Not that I think he was wrong to do so obvs, the book is from Bettina’s POV, so we’re likely going to side with herbut it’s almost too wonderful to have him go through such a change desquiciiada heart like that.
It’s like a fantasy ending, the kind of resolution that people who happen to be in sometimes-contentious relationships no one I know, of course only dream of. Which just made me sadder and sadder the more I’ve been thinking about it, that Sue Kaufman either just took the happily-ever-after, easy way out, or was so depressed by her own situation sorry, I read most everything as if it’s autobiographically based that she had to dream up an if-only and put it together, maybe as something to hold up as a beacon of hope.
I still like the book immensely, but I sorta want to retract my earlier rapturous proclamation of its believability and all that. Oct 26, Vanessa rated it really liked it. Touchy and disorganized he thinks I am.
Diary of a Mad Housewife
What I really am and have been since midsummer is paralyzed. What I am is paranoid as a coot. What I am at times is so depressed I can’t talk, so low I have to lock myself in the bathroom and run all the faucets to cover the sound of my crying.
What I am at desquicada times is so jazzed up with nerves I can’t stand still and everything shakes, and I end up either having to take a pill or a quick sneaky shot of vodka-it depends which is avai Touchy and disorganized he thinks I am. What I am at other times is so jazzed up with nerves I can’t stand still and everything shakes, and I end up either having to take a pill or a dixrio sneaky shot of vodka-it depends which is available.
What I am is suddenly afraid of most everything you could name. Earlier this year, my GR friend Julie and I tried to read the feminist roman a clef Fear of Flying and I desqiciada it’s fair to say we both found it to be punishment. That book was written in ; this one, written incovers similar ground but SO much fe.
Tina Balser is a ‘s Manhattan housewife–privileged, the kids would call her today. She has the Mad Men lifestyle: She has a degree from Smith College and two daughters who can be quite spoiled and condescending that’s dad’s influence. And having given up on life as an artist and spending her post-college single youth working as a secretary, she’s expected to become a housewife and hostess until the end of her days.
And this, along with her husband who has become quite the elitist starfucker over the last few years, is killing her. So she quietly rebels by writing, by keeping this diary from September to February–and also by having an affair with a handsome, successful playwright who is a shit heel of a different cut.
At least the sex is good and his feet are clean, unlike in Erica Jong’s book. If you’ve seen the great movie adaptation of this which I watched originally in college because my love Frank Langella was in it as the above-mentioned shit heelyou’ll see this book was faithfully adapted.
Some things are explained in more detail, mostly her relationship and history with her husband, Jonathan, who is so accurately and repulsively played by Richard Benjamin that it’s not clear how they ever got together in the first place. And I found it easier to root for Tina in the book–she’s neurotic, but wryly aware of it.
And she’s not the doormat that she sometimes is in the movie. When we talk about micro-aggressions today, some immediately roll their eyes and I’ll admit the conversation can get a little ridiculous at times. But reading this book I mean, God bless the women of the ‘s. The condescending male biosphere is thick: Seriously, “broad” is a red flag!!
I think this is a split between 3 and 4 stars, and I feel like rounding up instead of angsting about it. Also pretty sure I’ll be semi-unironically wearing my “Feminist Icon” t-shirt to work tomorrow because you know what’s real? View all 5 comments.

Pero, evidentemente, hay algo que no funciona. Es de aquellos libros que uno no tiene miedo a recomendar a cualquier lector. Es de aquellos libros que se dice que enganchan. Jun 14, Kim Fay rated it it was amazing. This is the kind of book that I have always envied for its style which I could never pull off. You either have this talent or you don’t. And Sue Kaufman has it.
My best description would be “controlled stream of consciousness. But this isn’t a tightly plotted book either, which makes it difficult to describe. I love the period This is the kind of book that I have always envied for its style which I could never pull off. I love the period details, and at the same time I appreciate the timelessness of the narrator, Bettina Balser’s attempts to maneuver through life and keep her head above water.
I was fascinated that and this is not a spoilershe became a housewife after living a relatively loose single girl’s life because it was seen as a kind of “cure” by her family. It’s almost as if Sally Jay Gorce from “The Dud Avocado” had yielded to external pressures to throw off her wicked ways and become what every woman was meant to be: I was also surprised and intrigued by the ending, and have spent time wondering how such an ending was received at the time of publication Apr 11, Tammy rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book is hysterical.
I have read it a half a dozen times and it just gets better as I get older. Jan 31, Anneta rated it liked it. Jul 28, Maggie rated it liked it. The tale stretches over roughly a six month period in the middle of her marriage to a successful and self-centered lawyer in the Upper West Side.
While the story is a bit dated, there’s sti Take one part The Group, two parts Bell Jar, a half portion of voyeurism, a dash of bitters, and you have Diary of a Mad Housewife. While the story is a bit dated, there’s still enough truth in Tina’s challenges and in the asinine behavior of her husband to make it somewhat relevant for today.
This book made me angry and uppity. You at least have to appreciate that. Sin embargo, no he conectado con ella ni con sus problemas o inquietudes. Dec 22, Heather rated it liked it. THis book was interesting to me in three ways.
