Lisa Taddeo with Claire Dederer

One of the summer’s most anticipated books is journalist Lisa Taddeo’s Three Women (Avid Reader/Simon & Schuster). An in-depth, thoughtful account of three women’s erotic lives, this book does not shy away from exploring women’s vulnerabilities and power.  

“Taddeo braids together the women’s narratives, which adds both suspense and heft as their desire-biographies echo and diverge. Her distinct proximity to her subjects shows in the intimate fantasies, scorching encounters, and profound pains they relate through her, but, the power resting fully with them, this never becomes voyeuristic. Instead, she allows them to be defined not by their jobs, kids, or, significantly, the men in their lives, but by a deep and essential part of themselves. Readers will almost certainly fly through this, and want to talk about it.”—Booklist (starred review).

Lisa Taddeo appears in conversation with Seattle writer, Claire Dederer, author most recently of Love and Trouble. Don’t miss this.
