I was looking for some truth and honesty. So according to the book title and reviews this book would offer that. WRONG this book is a series of short stories written by other award winning authors. To say this is the truth would be like watching romance movies and say that how relationships are. Some good books with women confessions and theres strangely too few books avalable on such a subject is Undressing Infidelity and kindle book To Love Honor Betray Secret lives of suburban wives. A great show of real life and love is the britain TV show How TV ruined your Life. With the episode about love.

I enjoyed most of this book. I liked how it took a whole bunch of different stories from "the other woman" showing a variety of different perspectives. It seemed to touch on a lot of different situations, the lead to a woman having this title. Some knew they were they other woman and liked it, some didn't, some it took them a while to figure it out, one woman was the other woman agaist her own free will, there was even the story of a gay couple (maybe two, can't remember exactly). Each situation was unique and different. It wasn't the same story over and over again. Some of the stories of course were more interesting, and better written than others, but the best part is if you didn't like a certain part, it only lasted a few pages before getting to a new person telling the story.

This was a different concept and premise of a book and I really enjoyed it. Usually books and stories deal with the person discovering they have been cheated on, but this takes on a whole new perspective. I really enjoyed this book, and I would read it again.

I purchased this and several other books on the subject of being 'the other woman' because a female co-worker of mine is involved with a married man. As a male, I could understand his interests whether I agree with what they are doing or not. On the other hand, I wanted to see a woman's perspective on what my co-worker may (or may not) be getting into. I have no romantic interest in my co-worker but we are on close enough terms that I wanted a book I could put in her hand and say something to the effect of 'Consider this...'.

Let me state emphatically that this was NOT the book I was seeking, nor do I think most people would benefit from it. The book is a collection of short essays by women about affairs they had. Most are about being a married man's other woman but some were lesbian other women. It reads more like a catharsis or confession and the quality of the writing varies substantially. Some give the impression they were written by heart broken teenagers and others are more eloquent but they do little to improve the book due to their brevity. The format of the book is a large part of the reason it is not a good buy. In order to gain understanding of any relationship, one needs greater depth and a more analytical approach. After reading even part of the book one quickly notices a theme of tears and tense nerves as the single connecting topic in the essays. Since the book is a collection of narratives compiled by one author it lacks the cohesiveness to tie these unconnected individuals together and it would have been far more useful if it offered some assessment and summations by the author. The 'broad, shallow approach' offered in this style of book is not nearly as valuable as an in depth study of one 'love triangle' because human relationships, particularly those with intense sexual desires, are just too involved to be summarized in a few pages. Most readers would leave this book with the feeling they were offered a few small scraps of experience rather than a well crafted and vicarious look into a lifestyle that may tempt some but almost always does not end up the way that most of its participants, most notably the female participants, would consider a happy outcome. I suggest avoiding this book as it raises more questions than it answers. Also, many other women do not have someone they can confide in and know that their secrets will stay theirs. If this was to be the book that a woman went to thinking that it would advise and guide her, she would be left unsatisfied at best. I really cannot say who would benefit from this book other than someone who just likes to sample others peccadilloes because there is little in the way of 'relationship advice' or moral clarity.

Good writing for sure but if you are looking for the drama of middle class soccer moms sleeping with someone else's soccer dad you won't find it here.

Mostly unmarried middle aged wealthy artists and their unmarried boyfriends, lesbians, even an abused child. Interesting stuff, just not what I was expecting.

Very good reading for those of us who are in an affair! A must have for anyone thinking about having an affair, already in one, or has been in one! This is definitely the kind of book to give to a friend, sister, aunt, cousin, or whoever else that you are close to and can take the constructive critisim this book offers.

21 short pieces shedding light on a difficult, much vilified position from 21 POVs. It's not an easy place for anyone to live, but life is not a simple business. Many of the stories are fascinating, all are well written.

At last we're pulling back the bedsheets on this topic. The essay by Dani Shapiro was devastating and the diatribe against mistresses by Connie May Fowler was a wake-up call. How many women have not been on one side of the equation? Or all of them? And this collection opens up the idea of what it means to be the Other Woman - it looks at a daughter's viewpoint, a sister-in-law's, etc. It shows how wide-reaching the aftermaths of adultery are. I've been on all sides. None of them are good. We need to dialogue on the causes or open up the questions of monogamy, marriage, and faithfulness. Well worth reading.
It is so rare to find a anthology that takes on so bravely a journey of love and betrayal. Rather than sentimentalizations and pop psychology, what we have in this marvellous collection is an embarassment of riches-- some of these jewels are told with bittersweet humor, some with just the right edginess and shocks of self-awareness, but what all these fine stories have in common is excellence. They sing the song of love gone wrong,and sting us not with glossy words and excuses and denials, but with identifiable states of raw hurt, delicious revenge, insight, and honesty.

An achievement from a wise and uncompromising editor who balanced confession with literary light, and had plenty of literary stars guiding its radiance.
