Amanda Craig's best books about modern married life

Amanda Craig is a British novelist, short-story writer and critic. Her latest novel is The Lie Of the Land. One of the author's favorite books about modern married life, as shared at the Guardian:
Deborah Levy’s The Cost of Living is a meditation on the way that a modern marriage still requires a wife to “wear a mask and her face grows to fit it”, especially when children arrive. Her account of her marriage breakdown and determination to be an artist is beautifully defiant and full of acute observation.
