The World and His Wife Summary


The World and His Wife: A true story told by two unreliable narrators by Stephen Wyatt

In 1828, the beautiful Rosina Wheeler married one of Victorian England's most successful and prolific writers, Edward Bulwer-Lytton. What followed shocked and entertained the public for over thirty years. After their marriage broke down, Rosina refused to be silenced. She pursued her husband with a single-minded and very public campaign to prove she was in the right. She even interrupted her husband's election campaign to denounce him to the assembled voters. Edward responded by threatening to have her committed to a lunatic asylum. But that was only the beginning. The novel draws freely on Edward and Rosina's own words. Both have a convincing story to tell - except that they disagree about everything.
