Intense and riveting. It gives us epic themes in miniature. These women broke my heart and I won't forget them.

on Three Women

An unflinching dissection of female desire so poetically described, I forgot it was non-fiction. Lisa Taddeo makes a gorgeous, unabashed debut. Wow. 

Gwyneth Paltrow
on Three Women

Three Women is an astonishing act of imaginative empathy and a gift to women around the world who feel 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 more.
