Synopses & Reviews
Exploring the realities of public piety and private philandering, Homewrecker combines fiction, nonfiction, and poetry to present a multitude of perspectives on adultery and the emotional complexity that affairs entail. Acclaimed contemporary writers share space with fresh talent in its pages, each with a different take on adultery and its aftermath. In "The Other Man," Stephen Elliot remembers the dominatrix who two-timed him with a square. Lori Selke spins steamy erotica in "Sex and the Married Dyke," a story about how quickly queer marriage can degenerate into extramarital queer activity. Neal Pollack's "Confessions of a Dial-up Gigolo" recalls the early days of the Internet when anything seemed possible, even destroying the marriage of someone you've never met.
