All Lina 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 to be understood. 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 be admired. How did she end up a sexual object of men, including her husband, who liked to watch her have sex with other men and women?

Three Women is a record of unmet needs, unspoken thoughts, disappointments, hopes and unrelenting obsessions.

Industry Reviews
The most important book I've read this decade, and possibly ever -- Books of the Decade * Stylist *
My best book of the year so far. And probably next year's too -- Jojo Moyes
Controversial, detailed, spellbinding, upsetting, true and compelling in equal measure -- Books of the Year * Sunday Times *
Painful and beautiful, gutting and sexy. I don't think I've read a book that has captivated me as intensely as this one, which I still think about, months later, in the quietest hours of the night * Red *
A book with the thrill of the new that you can expect to dominate WhatsApp threads, line Tube carriages and pop up in foreign Airbnbs for years to come * Evening Standard *
The biggest debut of the year . . . Groundbreaking * Vogue *
Captures the pain and powerlessness of desire as well as its heady joys -- Books of the Year * Economist *
For anyone who thinks they know what women want, this book is an alarm, and its volume is turned all the way up * Time Magazine *
This book wrecked me, in a good way -- Reese Witherspoon
Whether you are a man curious to know how the woman in your life thinks and feels, or a woman who longs to hear someone articulate the thoughts you've never even admitted to yourself, Three Women should be on your bedside table * Irish Independent *
