Three Women

A master class in empathy, Lisa Taddeo’s revelatory work of narrative nonfiction is already shaping up to be a feminist touchstone for years to come. Three Women follows the real lives of three deeply unsatisfied American women as they reckon with their unmet needs and unyielding obsessions. At once epic and intimate, Three Women is an essential exploration of female desire and its consequences in a patriarchal society.

Available July 9.
