Joan and Joe remain complements after nearly 40 years of marriage. Where
Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing.
And where Joe enjoys his very public role as the great American novelist,
Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm and diplomacy into the
private role of a great man’s wife. As Joe is about to be awarded the
Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work, Joan starts to
think about the shared compromises, secrets and betrayals.
