“I can’t imagine a scenario where this isn’t one of the more important—and breathlessly debated—books of the year.” —Dave Eggers 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—reads like George Packer’s The Unwinding, but for the state of female desire. Three Women is a major work from an exhilarating new voice.

    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 women speak for all women, but that they speak so clearly, honestly, and powerfully for themselves.

    This is a nonfiction book about the sexuality of three different women. One, a young woman who had an affair with her teacher in high school and later presses charges. Another, a woman who separates from her husband when she rekindles a sexual relationship with her high school boyfriend. The third, a woman who experiments with threesomes, voyuerism, and dominance/submission with her husband. This book, while very real, reads like a novel. The writing is captivating.

    Extremely insightful and captivating. I felt that I knew each woman personally by the end of the book and rooted for their happiness.

    It's a book that presents three different stories - each shocking and somehow unbelievable. But it's true. It all happened. It;s a book that must be read. For those women.

    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 times, they read like fiction, the sex and love and betrayal, but always with the underlying and even unsettling resonance of recognition. Taddeo disappears into her prose, allowing a focus, deep and respectful and unreserved, on these three women and on a desire pulsingly alive but previously lost amid the rote scandals of male desire in America. What emerges is a bitter truth, perhaps, but a kind of victorious one, finally being lifted into the light.

    “Throughout history, men have broken women’s hearts in a particular way. They love them or half-love them and then grow weary and spend weeks and months extricating themselves soundlessly, pulling their tails back into their doorways, drying themselves off and never calling again. Meanwhile, women wait.” [13] We pretend to want things we don’t want so nobody can see us not getting what we need.

This is the story of three women.” [17] “But life knows when to throw a plot twist. It is an idle but seasoned screenwriter, drinking beers alone and cultivating its archery.” [130] “What the fuck do you know about young women, Maggie thinks. We don’t remember what we want to remember. We remember what we can’t forget.” [278]
