These three stories, each of which examines a troubled marriage from a different point of view, were published separately in France in 1929, 1930, and 1936 respectively. This book presents the three stories together.

"A probing dissection of an unhappy marriage - of the conflict between love, emotion, passion on the one side and custom, tradition, morality on the other - told from a different point of view...The School for Wives shows the wife's side...Robert, the husband's...and Genevieve throws new light on the situation from the daughter's point of view." -Huntting

"A literary tour de force, as a character study of truly Gallic subtlety, and as an exposition of an obscure problem having no overt act. As a triumph of literary skill, the presentation of a complicated story by the medium of a diary kept by a guiless woman is striking." -Outlook
