Anna Benz, an American in her late thirties, lives with her Swiss husband, Bruno - a banker - and their three young children in a postcard-perfect suburb of Zürich. Though she leads a comfortable, well-appointed life, Anna is falling apart inside. Adrift and increasingly unable to connect with the emotionally unavailable Bruno or even with her own thoughts and feelings, Anna tries to rouse herself with new experiences.
Wonderful writing; pathetic, passive protagonist &

Read Anna Karenina instead if you want to be depressed. Except Anna K. is more believable than this helpless and entitled creature.
