A riveting true story about the sex lives of three real American women “who are carnal, brave, and beautifully flawed” (People, Book of the Week), based on nearly a decade of reporting.

Lina, a young mother in suburban Indiana whose marriage has lost its passion, reconnects with an old flame through social media and embarks on an affair that quickly becomes all-consuming. Maggie, a seventeen-year-old high school student in North Dakota, allegedly engages in a relationship with her married English teacher; the ensuing criminal trial turns their quiet community upside down. Sloane, a successful restaurant owner in an exclusive enclave of the Northeast, is happily married to a man who likes to watch her have sex with other men and women.

Hailed as “a dazzling achievement” (Los Angeles Times) and “a riveting page-turner that explores desire, heartbreak, and infatuation in all its messy, complicated nuance” (The Washington Post), Lisa Taddeo’s Three Women has captivated readers, booksellers, and critics—and topped bestseller lists—worldwide. Based on eight years of immersive research, it is “an astonishing work of literary reportage” (The Atlantic) that introduces us to three unforgettable women—and one remarkable writer—whose experiences remind us that we are not alone.

Surprising and not what I expected. Sometimes hard to follow as an audio book

A very good listen, though I found the perspective a little stifling. It is sometimes compared to Studs Terkel's interview style but I thought it was much less objective than that.

This book is very interesting, hearing the interwoven perspectives of the various women and their stories should be a must read for everyone. It has a sense of deep relevance and relate-ability for myself as a female.

I enjoyed this book but found it slightly weird. As a woman, if you can relate to any of the 3 characters in the book, then it would be more enjoyable I think. Definitely, outside of my norm in terms of books I enjoy but worth the change.
