Three Women: Lisa Taddeo in conversation
'Three Women is riveting – a searing, honest, visceral and compulsive account of women's desire. I've never read anything like it'
I can’t imagine a scenario where this isn’t one of the more important – and breathlessly debated – books of the year’
‘Intense and riveting. It gives us epic themes in miniature. These women broke my heart and I won’t forget them’
Hear about the genesis of one of the most anticipated books of the year as journalist and author Lisa Taddeo opens up on Three Women—a groundbreaking debut of narrative non-fiction exploring the joys, aches, and politics of female desire.
Taddeo will share how she blended empathy, literary insight and thousands of hours of journalistic work to offer a profound panorama of female desire through the stories of three real women. She will prod the gender dynamics that held them back, the taboos that discredited them, and the cravings they had to repress—demonstrating the importance of illuminating women’s emotions in literature and beyond. Leaning on her watershed debut, she will show the power of honesty and compassion in reminding us that we are not alone.
Taddeo will joined by journalist, editor and author of novels including The Woman Who Ran, Sam Baker and the event will be followed by a Q&A and a book signing.
