A radically subversive critique brings to the fore the masculine ideology implicit in psychoanalytic theory and in Western discourse in general: woman is defined as a disadvantaged man, a male construct with no status of her own.
Almost half of all married men, and slightly fewer married women, admit to having had at least one affair. This is the book for the woman who finds herself involved with such a married man! This is absolutely not a "how to become a mistress" book. It offers help to those who are already finding themselves in this situation so everyone involved survives the experience as unharmed as possible under the circumstances, especially the "Other Woman" herself. Insightful, at times funny, and always straight to the point, this book is a "must read" for every "Other Woman!" And let us not forget that there is a betrayed wife and a cheating husband for every Other Woman. This book would be an eyeopener for many of those, too.
Inside and outside marriage, what happens to the woman betrayed? How do abandoned wives or lovers feel? What happens when the battle between the sexes becomes a triangle? The plots in this collection of eighteen stories written between the 1840s and 1980s are infinitely variable, and the outcomes will enrage, shock, amuse, and sometimes hearten. In some stories, women forge links with other women in solidarity. In others, women fight for their men and win. In many stories, the betrayal ultimately enriches the central character, who learns through the loss of her man the value of her own life.
Eric Jerome Dickey strides boldly over the minefield that is modern marriage. The central couple's biggest challenge is timing: He works days; she works nights. Instead of growing together, they're rapidly drifting apart, coexisting on stolen phone calls from work, punctuated by occasional bedroom encounters that leave them both feeling even emptier and more alone. When she finds out about his affair-and starts her own-the delicate fabric of their marriage is torn irrevocably asunder. Or is it? In Dickey's expert hands, what begins as a seemingly unforgivable betrayal segues into the sexy and searing story of a man and a woman at a pivotal turning point in their relationship. Only time will tell whether they'll let it all go...or can hold on to the love that drew them together in the first place.
