Three Women Extraordinary A nonfiction literary masterpiece I can t remember the last time a book affected me as profoundly as Three Women Elizabeth Gilbert This is one of the most riveting, assured, and scorchingly original debuts I ve ever read Dave Eggers An instant feminist classicUtterly engrossingGame changing O, The Oprah MagazineDesire as we ve never seen it before a riveting true story about the sex lives of three real American women, based on nearly a decade of reporting.It thrills us and torments us It controls our thoughts, destroys our lives, and it s all we live for Yet we almost never speak of it And as a buried force in our lives, desire remains largely unexplored until now Over the past eight years, journalist Lisa Taddeo has driven across the country six times to embed herself with ordinary women from different regions and backgrounds The result, Three Women, is the deepest nonfiction portrait of desire ever written and one of the most anticipated books of the year.We begin in suburban Indiana with Lina, a homemaker and mother of two whose marriage, after a decade, has lost its passion She passes her days cooking and cleaning for a man who refuses to kiss her on the mouth, protesting that the sensation offends him To Lina s horror, even her marriage counselor says her husband s position is valid Starved for affection, Lina battles daily panic attacks When she reconnects with an old flame through social media, she embarks on an affair that quickly becomes all consuming.In North Dakota we meet Maggie, a seventeen year old high school student who finds a confidant in her handsome, married English teacher By Maggie s account, supportive nightly texts and phone calls evolve into a clandestine physical relationship, with plans to skip school on her eighteenth birthday and make love all day instead, he breaks up with her on the morning he turns thirty A few years later, Maggie has no degree, no career, and no dreams to live for When she learns that this man has been named North Dakota s Teacher of the Year, she steps forward with her story and is met with disbelief by former schoolmates and the jury that hears her case The trial will turn their quiet community upside down.Finally, in an exclusive enclave of the Northeast, we meet Sloane a gorgeous, successful, and refined restaurant owner who is happily married to a man who likes to watch her have sex with other men and women He picks out partners for her alone or for a threesome, and she ensures that everyone s needs are satisfied For years, Sloane has been asking herself where her husband s desire ends and hers begins One day, they invite a new man into their bed but he brings a secret with him that will finally force Sloane to confront the uneven power dynamics that fuel their lifestyle.Based on years of immersive reporting, and told with astonishing frankness and immediacy, Three Women is a groundbreaking portrait of erotic longing in today s America, exposing the fragility, complexity, and inequality of female desire with unprecedented depth and emotional power It is both a feat of journalism and a triumph of storytelling, brimming with nuance and empathy, that introduces us to three unforgettable women and one remarkable writer whose experiences remind us that we are not alone.

    Three Women tells the story of female desire, not as experienced by all women, but by Lina, Maggie, and Sloane The stories of these women are surprising and thought provoking, and Lisa Taddeo relates them in a book that is as insightful as it is impossible to put down It isn t that these three wome...

    I rarely race through a piece of nonfiction the way I devoured Lisa Taddeo s THREE WOMEN As you may have guessed, the book tells the story of three women, with the focus placed largely on their sex lives From the first pages comes a nuanced and often upsetting portrait of the blurred lines of consent, the rough edges of love, and the millions of ways that women hide their true desires even from themselves This book made me furious Maggie s story of her relationship with her high school teache I rarely race through a piece of nonfiction the way I devoured Lisa Taddeo s THREE WOMEN As you may have guessed, the book tells the story of three women, with the focus placed largely on their sex lives From the first pages comes a nuanced and often upsetting portrait of the blurred lines of consent, the rough edges of love, and the millions of ways that women hide their true desires even from themselves This...

    In Three Women, journalist Lisa Taddeo seeks to press her thumb against the pulse of female desire in America today through the lives of Maggie, a student in a romantic relationship with her teacher, Lina, an Indiana housewife seeking human touch through an affair, and Sloane, a sleek restaurateur whose husband enjoys watching her with other men I read this book in practically one sitting, unable to tear myself away from the emotional complexity and narrative force of these women s lives at tim In Three Women, journalist Lisa Taddeo seeks to press her thumb against the pulse of female desire in America today through the lives of Maggie, a student in a romantic relationship with her teacher, Lina, an Indiana housewife seeking human touch through an affair, and Sloane, a sleek restaurateur whose husband enjoys watching her with other men I read this book in practically one sitting, unable to tear myself away from the emotional complexity and narrative force of these women ...

    When the object of desire dictated the narrative, that was where I found the most magnificence, the most pain, writes Lisa Taddeo, author of Three Women She isn t kidding From the first page, I was immediately obsessed with Taddeo s delicious delve into desire, or the lack of, through the eyes and lives of Lina, Maggie and Sloan Take a slightly salacious, sometimes heart crushingly sad and a most definitely voyeuristic view of these women defined and, essentially destroyed, by their longin When the object of desire dictated the narrative, that was where I found the most magnificence, the most pain, writes Lisa Taddeo, author of Three Women She isn t kidding From the first page, I was immediately obsessed with Taddeo s delicious delve into desire, or the lack of, through the eyes and lives of Lina, Maggie and Sloan Take a slightly salacious, sometimes heart crushingly ...

    Out of the many women who initially agreed to speak to Ms Taddeo, only three finally agreed to have crucial aspects of their lives told The sexuality of women remains a keen focal point and, in this book, it shows we still have a ways to go when it comes to being open minded or allowing women complete sexual freedom All three women undergo a kind of judgment when confronting their sexual natures or exposing them to others.Underneath what seems to be sexual freedom lie undeniable constraints Out of the many women who initially agreed to speak to Ms Taddeo, only three finally agreed to have crucial aspects of their lives told The sexuality of women remains a keen focal point and, in this book, it shows we still have a ways to go when it comes to being open minded or allowing women complete sexual freedom All three women undergo a kind of judgment when confronting their sexual natures or exposing them to others.Underneath what seems to be sexual freedom lie undeniable constraints Whether sleeping with a husband or conducting an affair, the men always call the shots telling the women whom to sleep with, when they can phone or detailing the times and places they can meet There is defiance here, undoubted sexual joy But always in tandem with that unfettered glee is the shadow thrown across by the males who judge, give, withhold and cast off at their fancy The three women are very different and at different crossroads in their lives Th...
