**Foyles Non-Fiction Book of the Year 2019** Publishing straight into the pantheon of classic narrative non-fiction, journalist Lisa Taddeo’s debut book follows Maggie, Lina and Sloane—three real American women whose sexual and personal stories go unspoken and unheard in a patriarchal world. Taddeo spent eight years researching her subjects’ lives, embedding herself in their worlds, and the result is a profoundly frank and recognisable depiction of the innermost longings, struggles and heartaches of women today.
Winner of the British Book Awards Non-Fiction Narrative Book of the Year 2020 All Lina wanted was to be desired. How did she end up in a marriage with two children and a husband who wouldn't touch her? All Maggie wanted was to be understood. How did she end up in a relationship with her teacher and then in court, a hated pariah in her small town? All Sloane wanted was to be admired. How did she end up a sexual object of men, including her husband, who liked to watch her have sex with other men and women? Three Women, which was nearly a decade in the making, is a staggering work of non-fiction for our times.
