Large Print Book

Large print edition.

An account based on nearly a decade of reporting examines the sex lives of three American women, exploring the complexity and fragility of female desire.
Indiana: Lina passes her days cooking and cleaning for her husband, who refuses to kiss her on the mouth; even her marriage counselor says her husband's position is valid. Reconnecting with an old flame through social media, she embarks on an affair. North Dakota: high school student Maggie finds a confidant in her married English teacher; supportive texts and phone calls evolve into a clandestine physical relationship. In the Northeast: Sloane, a successful restaurant owner, is happily married to a man who likes to watch her have sex with other men and women; he picks out partners for her and she ensures that everyone's needs are satisfied. Taddeo examines erotic longing and exposes the inequality of female desire with unprecedented depth and emotional power. -- adapted from jacket of regular print edition
