Anmerkung des Herausgebers

Hot summer read…
New York magazine contributor Lisa Taddeo spent eight years (!) reporting on the intimate lives of three American women. The result is a sultry, clear-eyed work of narrative journalism that is so propulsive it reads more like a great work of fiction meant to be devoured on the beach than a non-fiction exploration of sex and female desire — but that’s part of its brilliance. Emma Roberts selected “Three Women” as her July 2019 Belletrist book club pick.


From a thrilling new talent, Three Women is an astonishing work of narrative journalism — reported over eight years — about the sex lives and desires of three ordinary American women.

Lina, a homemaker in suburban Indiana, is a decade into a passionless marriage when she embarks on an affair that quickly becomes all-consuming and transforms her life. Sloane, a glamorous entrepreneur in the Northeast, is married to a man who likes to watch her have sex with other men and women. Maggie, a high school student in North Dakota, begins a relationship with her English teacher that will have extraordinary consequences for them both — as well as the community in which they live.

For nearly a decade, Lisa Taddeo, an award-winning journalist and longtime contributor to New York Magazine and Esquire, embedded herself with three everyday women to write this deeply immersive account of their erotic lives and longings. The result — shocking, powerful, and timely — comes across like George Packer’s The Unwinding, but for the state of female desire. Three Women is a major work from an exhilarating new voice.
