Lisa Taddeo has written a truly original book. She spent eight years immersed in the lives of three women she selected in her quest to investigate the true lives of the American woman.
Maggie, Lina and Sloane are the ‘Three Women’ Taddeo selected for this raw and revealing book. Maggie is a 20 something who’s story centres around an illicit relationship she had with her teacher in high school. Lina’s story begins in high school with a sexual assault but focuses on her loveless marriage and burning desires. Sloane, somewhat contrastingly, is a successful 40 something who seemingly has it all including a husband who’s fantasies push her moral and mental boundaries.
Taddeo explores the impact of sexual coercion, desire and frustration along side the emotional turmoil and psychological torture that can accompany it. Her frank depictions are both cringeworthy and heart breaking in their accuracy.
I can’t recommend this book enough – it is the perfect insight into heterosexual relationships and their continued inequality ❤️📚 @bloomsburypublishing @sundaytimesculture @lisadtaddeo
