When a sudden spell settles upon the women of a small town, they turn their backs on the husbands and lovers, just as the new high school drama teacher has chosen Lysistrata as the senior play! In the hands of a lesser writer, such a ploy might not work, but Meg Wolitzer hits the mark with this tale, shall we say parable or fable, of love, sex, and power in the modern age. Proving once again that little has changed between men and women since genesis.
