Told from Clara's point of view, she tells of her midlife crisis about her marriage. She had hopes that a family life would be better than her own upbringing by a mother who collects ex-husbands, her distant father and her spoiled stepsisters. But she discovers that married life is boring. She looks with envy at her friends who are single. She obsesses about her weight, her unfashionable wardrobe and her husband's failure to help around the house. She struggles to juggle both home and work. Little happens by way of plot, but Clara's observations are self deprecating and funny.
