Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An anthology collection of twenty-one essays that concern "the other woman"--either being her or having her wreak havoc on a marriage or relationship--now available as a trade paperback.


From some of America's top writers comes a groundbreaking, compulsively readable anthology about that most taboo of subjects-women who steal husbands and lovers from other women, and the consequences for those left behind.

She's been called the vixen, the Jezebel, the Lorelei, the bitch...and other choice names. In truth, she is someone's daughter, mother, friend, confidante. She seduces husbands, breaks up marriages, and occasionally becomes a stepmother. Sometimes, she is even a victim. So who is this creature who arrives like a wrecking ball to destroy lives and families? She is the Other Woman-but she's only half the story.

For every Other Woman, there is a wife or girlfriend whose relationship has been devastated or--surprisingly--blissfully liberated. Some women find themselves playing both roles during the course of a lifetime.

With twenty-one insightful essays from some of the country's most respected and award-winning female authors, this collection explores the highly personal, sometimes anguished, sometimes hilarious, but always compelling experiences of women on both sides of these highly charged and emotional situations.
