Our Inaugural Selection: Three Women by Lisa Taddeo

Three Women is the put-everything-down-and-read-this true story about what drives the desire of three American women. Yes, we know, we’ve launched with a non-fiction book about sex! Rest assured, this is not some kind of Fifty Shades-style kink fest but serious literary inquiry into the hopes, fears, disappointments and secrets of three women which, thanks to the meticulous writing, reads more like gripping fiction than it does journalistic investigation. 

The author, Lisa Taddeo, spent eight years immersed in the lives of these women. In two cases she moved to the towns where they lived so she could better understand their day-to-day lives. The result is narrative non-fiction at its finest that offers a deeply personal, often painful, wildly voyeuristic and refreshingly nuanced perspective. The result is narrative non-fiction at its finest that offers a deeply personal, often painful, wildly voyeuristic and refreshingly nuanced perspective and it's absolutely fascinating!
