True Reads Book Club: Three Women
Come discuss the most interesting books in new Non-Fiction with our True Reads book club! Happening every 4-6 weeks hosted by a charming member of the Drawn & Quarterly staff.
For our SEPTEMBER meeting, we’ll be reading Three Women by Lisa Taddeo. The book club will meet at La Petite Librairie Drawn & Quarterly, 176 Bernard Ouest at 7pm. La Petite’s Arizona O’Neil will be hosting!
It thrills us and torments us. It controls our thoughts, destroys our lives, and it’s all we live for. Yet we almost never speak of it. And as a buried force in our lives, desire remains largely unexplored—until now. Over the past eight years, journalist Lisa Taddeo has driven across the country six times to embed herself with ordinary women from different regions and backgrounds. The result, Three Women, is the deepest nonfiction portrait of desire ever written and one of the most anticipated books of the year.
Based on years of immersive reporting, and told with astonishing frankness and immediacy, Three Women is a groundbreaking portrait of erotic longing in today’s America, exposing the fragility, complexity, and inequality of female desire with unprecedented depth and emotional power. It is both a feat of journalism and a triumph of storytelling, brimming with nuance and empathy, that introduces us to three unforgettable women—and one remarkable writer—whose experiences remind us that we are not alone.
