Lisa Taddeo: Three Women

Lisa Taddeo: Three Women

Due to the ever evolving position with Covid-19, Lisa’s scheduled event at  Southbank Centre on 17 September has been cancelled with further details to follow in the coming days. The venue will contact you directly to reissue your tickets to the new date or to issue refund if you are unable to make the rearranged date.

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 to celebrate paperback publication of her literary sensation. 

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: a record of unmet needs, unspoken thoughts, disappointments, hopes and unrelenting obsessions. 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.
