Lisa Taddeo: Three Women

This event has been cancelled as we are currently closed due to the coronavirus crisis.

The author celebrates the paperback publication of her literary sensation: a record of unmet needs, unspoken thoughts, disappointments, hopes and unrelenting obsessions.

All Lina ever 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 for someone to believe in her. 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 feel loved and worthy. How did she end up burying her past and confused about her present, having sex with other men and women in front of her husband?

Join Lisa Taddeo, author of the UK and US bestseller Three Women, live in conversation.

In the past year, Taddeo has gone from being a relatively little-known journalist to one of the most celebrated authors of recent times, thanks to her extraordinary debut book.

The US author spent more than eight years on the book, talking to three American women about sex, desire and the needs that unite us all.

Once she found her subjects, she spent months with them, even moving to their towns to be part of their daily lives.

Don’t miss this chance to join the author of this publishing sensation in a rare live appearance, for a thought-provoking discussion about her raw, lyrical debut that tests the boundaries of non-fiction.

Presented by Fane in collaboration with Bloomsbury.
