Three Women
Three Women | Lisa Taddeo
From a thrilling new talent, Lisa Taddeo, Three Women is a mesmerizing 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 married 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 ordinary 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 talent.

You might pick this up and think you‘re getting the literary equivalent of sitting down to chat with gal pals à la Sex and the City but what you really get is more like sitting with a somber group who let you into their messy, dark and wounded selves and maybe hope you don‘t judge too harshly. It is elegantly and deliciously written and reads so much like fiction it‘s hard to believe it‘s not.

I shall hopefully start it in the next week or so - going away this weekend and it‘s going to be a hardly-read-anything weekend 😱

I have so many feelings/questions about this book. It‘s amazing, but uncomfortable. At times I questioned these women‘s choices and at other times I found them embarrassingly familiar. I was outraged at the way they were treated, but knew I would have judged or had been judged similarly myself. There‘s so much here.

Opening sentence from Three Women:
“When my mother was a young woman a man used to follow her to work every morning and masturbate, in step behind her.” Hmmmm this one could be interesting... I‘ve heard great reviews...

Where judgment and reflexive distancing tend to dominate, Lisa Taddeo leads you into the nuances and complexities of the experiences and emotional landscapes of these women with stunning empathy.

This is a pick for me, but I can see how it wouldn‘t be for some. This is supposed to be a treatise on female desire, but for me it was more about women being taken advantage of by men. Sad, and at times depressing, I still feel this is an important read.

The story that made me the most angry was Maggie‘s. Maggie was taken advantage of by her teacher. Not only did he ruin her life, he also ruined the lives of her entire family.

TheBookHippie I agree with you. All the same thoughts! 2d
Meghan1 @TheBookHippie I am a teacher, so that story just killed me!! I had a college professor like that. Looking back on it, he was trying to groom me, but I was clueless. 2d
TheBookHippie @Meghan1 we had this happen at our High school. Teacher got 30 days in jail and he admitted it... ugh. The girl will never be the same. I had an art teacher like this I was clueless as well .. 2d

Meghan1 @TheBookHippie, we just had a 5th grade teacher from my school arrested for viewing and sharing child porn on his home computer. We were all in shock. It makes me sad that, despite all the fighting we have done for equal rights, women, in many cases still don‘t have a voice. 2d

Meghan1 @TheBookHippie I didn‘t realize how charged up about this I was!! 2d
TheBookHippie @Meghan1 I immediately called my adult daughter and texted @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks about it. I think it‘s a necessary read. I needed to talk after finishing it this week!!! 2d

This book was written so effectively. I feel very uneasy after reading this and mostly sad to read about the the stories of these women who have suffered such trauma and gone unheard for so long. I think this book is super important and shows us what we need to do to start to fix the problems we are facing now that are taking away women‘s voices.

This was an engrossing character study of three women, all of whom I could relate to in one way or another. Lina was my favorite and I definitely knew a guy like her boyfriend (and let him treat me similarly - what was I thinking?). All in all, this is an excellent #botm pick, well written, although with a few annoying tendencies (lovecrush etc and all the made up words). 4⭐️

Phenomenal portrait of three women, their lives, their desires, their thoughts. I wish I could ask the author about the epilogue, though I‘m thinking part of the closing idea was that (especially as fellow women) we need to support each other in our happiness. How does this play out with social media, and the rise of “faux-perfection” I wonder?

There were so many good quotes, I hope I can post some.

This was a bit different than I expected, but not in a bad way. Taddeo followed three women for eight years to immerse herself in their lives. This mostly focused on their love lives and why the made the decisions they did. It is raw, enlightening, honest, and brutal. #botm #lovefool #lilithjuly

I wish I could say that all these markers are for brilliant, insightful or lovely passages. For me, the hype on this one is overblown. I‘m finding the writing clunky, the context lacking and the underlying assumptions suspect. I‘m disappointed. I‘ll finish it, but have low hopes for it turning around. 😢

Megabooks I couldn‘t agree with you more. You wrote my feelings better than I did. 1w
HardcoverHearts @Megabooks It‘s such a bummer because I really wanted a great book on female desire but this isn‘t it. I think Come As You Are by Emily Nagoski or Mating In Captivity by Esther Perel are much better nonfiction reads on this subject. 1w
Megabooks Plus, I found very little positive in it. The small amount joy these women seem to eek out from sex and intimacy was just sad. I mean one woman fakes her whole life, another was raped and abandoned, a third thinks it‘s good when her lover spends a half hour with her and will do virtually anything to have that half hour. Is real depressing sometimes? Yes. Are there healthier relationships she could‘ve picked? Yes. 1w
HardcoverHearts @Megabooks I resent her assertions that desire is an overwhelming force that one is powerless to control. I was expecting a feminist romp through the joys of female desire, not a Tyler Perry movie about the perils that will befall you if you partake! 1w

Absolutely riveting. Women‘s sexuality is messy and complicated and contradictory and Taddeo captured it so beautifully. It is a very specific story about a very specific sub-set of women and those going into it expecting some sort of Masters & Johnson study will undoubtedly be disappointed. But I found this to be earth shatteringly good. 5🌟

Nute I had decided to bypass reading this based on an earlier review. I agree with @Leftcoastzen and @Christine that because a book is not for every reader we get to see polarized reviews with various levels of satisfaction, likes and dislikes. With Litsy it is so quick for a decision not to read a book to get turned around by reading the very next review! Five Star Ratings are making me reconsider this book. 1w

Mehso-so

This is bound to be a controversial addition to the #metoo conversion. Taddeo presents painfully raw feelings and thoughts from 3 women, but all are white and hetero and not representative of women as a whole. It‘s a graphic, narrow slice of desire. Taddeo offers zero analysis or sociological perspective so the level of scholarship is zilch. The reader becomes a voyeur. It‘s like reading a scorching romance or a teenage girl‘s private diary. 💋

Christine As a sociologist, I too blanched at the very-not-representative nature of this book, especially because I imagine a lot of people will assume it‘s supposed to be generalizable to the whole. And I did at times feel like a voyeur and was wondering if I was actually reading soft porn? 😜 But as a piece of narrative nonfiction, not social science, and as a raw account of three lived experiences (however non-generalizable), I think it has value. 2w
catiewithac @Christine I think the book has value, too! 2w

Hooked_on_books @catiewithac That‘s exactly why it didn‘t appeal. I‘d love to see an exploration of women from various paths including but not focusing exclusively on sexuality. It‘s good for us to read about women as whole people, not just the components. 2w

Well, that was gripping. Also at times confounding, rage-inducing, cringeworthy - but never boring. (Women‘s true stories never are!) I do have mixed feelings about some aspects of the book. But I‘m glad it‘s getting big press, since women‘s desire - esp. as a self-defining trait, not as an afterthought - deserves the attention Taddeo gives it. The writing is electric, and the audio narrators (three talented actors + the author) were outstanding.

The most enthralling book of 2019 so far for me. It was heart-pumping and intense, familiar and wholly new. This book is hard to describe. Or maybe it‘s simple: an exclusive peek into the sex lives of three ordinary women. All of them impacted by the men and women around them in subtle, unknowable, and also devastating ways. Like us all. True humanity exists in these pages. We are all so much more complex than we give ourselves credit for.

Quite simply, this book is incredible. It‘s certain to be one of my favorites of the year. The author explores female desire by telling the stories of three women: Maggie, Lina, and Sloane. These stories could have come from your friends, neighbors, coworkers. They are heartbreaking and captivating all at once. Suffused with pathos, this is not one to miss!

It takes a rare talent to write about sex in a way that is enthralling and immersive, but never titillating. Three Women is not an erotic book. Taddeo spent years investigating the sexual lives of three women (Lina, Maggie, and Sloane), and the experiences that shaped them. This book is the meticulously detailed account of her heart-wrenching findings... Full review here: https://primer.com.au/three-women-reveal-their-sex-lives-book-review/

My BOTM came yesterday... And this one might jump to the top of the TBR pile. Anyone else reading this?

TheSpineView I got a copy from the author when I was at BookExpo but I have not gotten to it yet. Looking forward to what you think. 2w

Maggie‘s story, of the three, was the most compelling for me. I‘m glad that Taddeo was able to keep the right names in this narrative because I liked being able to look up the case and read about it after finishing the book. Maggie‘s story was resounding and so important for Taddeo to put in the open like this. Slone and Lina‘s stories were important, but no one deserves justice like Maggie does. #botm

I decided on my July #botm selections! It's tough since I always want them all. I had to choose one of June's picks (Summer of '69) as an add-on because it sounds like the perfect beach read and I was regretting not adding it last month.

Reviewsbylola I just read 69 and really liked it. Reading 3W now! 2w
britt_reads @Reviewsbylola I'm still anxiously awaiting their arrival, but they should be here any day now! I can't wait! 2w

I was on the fence about Sager‘s book. But I loved Last Time I Lied, so I had a hard time resisting this one. I‘m really excited for Three Women!

I‘ve been on a, “need more non-fiction on my shelf” kick!

But for the first time, I wanted ALL of the books this month! Money is tight so I couldn‘t, but they will be my future add ons if they don‘t sell out 😍👏🏻😊
