Summary
Chronicles the emotional war between Irene America, a beautiful, introspective woman of Native American ancestry, struggling to finish her dissertation while raising three children, and her husband Gil, a painter whose reputation is built on a series of now iconic portraits of Irene. When Irene discovers Gil has been reading her diary, she begins a secret Blue Notebook where she records the truth about her life and marriage, while turning her Red Diary into a manipulative farce. The novel alternates between these two records and an unflinching third-person narrative
Summary
After she discovers that her husband has been reading her diary, Irene America turns it into a manipulative farce, while secretly keeping a second diary that includes her true thoughts, through which the reader learns of Irene's shaky marriage, its affect on her children and her struggles with alcohol.
