Albany, NY – Alison Lurie, who won the Pulitzer Prize for her 1984 novel "Foreign Affairs," has written a new novel about a middle-aged couple dealing with the effects of the husband's severe back injury. The comic novel explores the dynamics of middle-aged marriages and imploding relationships, themes Lurie discusses with Gretchen in this often funny interview.
