Product description

Review

The kind of bold, timely, once-in-a-generation book that every house should have a copy of, and probably will before too long (New Statesman)

Three Women is an astonishing act of imaginative empathy and a gift to women around the world who feel like their desires are ignored and their voices aren't heard. This is a book that blazes, glitters and cuts to the heart of who we are. I'm not sure that a book can do much more (Sunday Times)

When I picked it up, I felt I'd been waiting half my life to read it; when I put it down, it was as though I had been disembowelled. There isn't a woman alive who won't recognise - her stomach lurching, her heart beating wildly - something of what Maggie, Lina and Sloane go through (Observer)

An extraordinary piece of non-fiction - a page-rippingly intimate and compelling narration of the desires and sexual proclivities of three real women. Taddeo does not sensationalise, but nor is she coy; the narrative crackles with the visceral details of eroticism. The result feels like a new genre (The Times)

A book with the thrill of the new that you can expect to dominate WhatsApp threads, line tube carriages and pop up in foreign AirBnbs for years to come. Taddeo hasn't just caught a moment, she has spawned a new genre. Three Women reminds us that it is both wonderful and brutal to be in love (Evening Standard)

It's painful and beautiful, gutting and sexy. I don't think I've read a book that has captivated me as intensely as this one, which I still think about, months later, in the quietest hours of the night (Red)

I've never read a work of non-fiction that so candidly and completely accesses the inner sanctums of its subjects' private lives. I must confess that I found this book almost impossibly compelling. Three Women is a sort of real-world Mills & Boon novel told with the gravitas and momentum of the grittiest, most gripping true crime story. It's the book no one I know can put down, and the one everyone is talking about (Daily Telegraph)

Three Women examines love and lust, instigation and exploitation, fairytales and infidelity, girlhood and womanhood and motherhood and all the liminal spaces between, and it asks big questions about who we are allowed to be as women. I salute Lisa Taddeo

One of the blockbuster publishing events of 2019. An instant classic (i)

The book every man should read this summer. An incredible feat, Three Women has the qualities and the momentum to become a literary sensation (Esquire)
