Three Women, by Lisa Taddeo (paperback, July 2020)
The International No. 1 Bestseller' Cuts to the heart of who we are' Sunday Times' A book that begs discussion' Vanity Fair All Lina wanted was to be desired. How did she end up in a marriage with two children and a husband who wouldn't touch her? All Maggie wanted was to be understood.
How did she end up in a relationship with her teacher and then in court, a hated pariah in her small town? All Sloane wanted was to be admired. How did she end up a sexual object of men, including her husband, who liked to watch her have sex with other men and women?
Three Women, which was nearly a decade in the making, is a staggering work of non-fiction for our times. It's visceral, analytical and reads like a novel. Very unusual and worthy of discussion.
