'Uxorious obsession'
You've got to admire Michiko Kakutani. When she doesn't like your book, she'll take all the effort required to tell you just why. See today's review of Norman Rush's latest, Mortals, where she takes poor Norm to task for (among other things) his character's "uxorious obsession."

Great phrase. I probably suffer from a bit of it myself, as I remarked this morning to my uxor. A sure sign is the number of references to her that you'll find scattered through this weblog.
