The Story

The Wife tells the story of Joan Castleman (Glenn Close), who has spent forty years sacrificing her own talent, dreams and ambitions to support her charismatic husband Joe (Jonathan Pryce) and his stellar literary career. Ignoring infidelities and excuses made in the cause of his art, she has put up with his behaviour with undiminished grace and humour. The foundations of their marriage have, however, been built upon a set of uneven compromises and Joan has reached a turning point.

On the eve of Joe’s Nobel Prize for Literature, the crown jewel rewarding a spectacular body of work, Joan will confront the biggest sacrifice of her life and some long-buried secrets.

To Enter

Simply watch the trailer and answer one simple question:

What does Joan Castleman (Glenn Close) say when asked if she has an occupation?

First prize is a signed copy of The Wife novel (signed by Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce and director Bjorn Runge), a signed A2 poster (by Glenn Close and Bjorn Runge) and a bookmark.

Two runners up will win an unsigned copy of the book with bookmark.

Winners will be selected at random. Open to UK residents only.

Send your answer by email, along with your name and the area you live in. The deadline for entries is 28 October.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
