All Lina wanted was to be desired. How did she end up in a marriage with 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, 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? Three Women is a record of unmet needs, unspoken thoughts, disappointments, hopes and unrelenting obsessions.
