The Constant Wife


by W. Somerset Maugham

Maugham’s modern and amusing take on marriage and infidelity gives a quick-witted, alternative view on how to deal with an extra-marital affair. Smart, sophisticated, Constance Middleton is kind and rich and yet all her friends feel sorry for her. Her husband John is having an affair with none other than her best friend. Rather than humiliating herself and others, she denies the affair, defends the two, and sets about turning bad luck, unfaithful friends, local gossip and a broken heart to her own advantage.
