three women: a review

one of my favorite books of the year. this nonfiction reads like fiction so readers of every kind will love. the author takes a deep dive into the lives of three very real women living very real lives. inner thoughts, confessionals, sex lives, nothing goes unsaid. the author explores feminine desire and how it is vilified, suppressed, ignored and deemed pornographic if it shows up at all. lisa writes down all the nitty gritty details of desire and life in a beautiful narrative that almost reads like a poem. i fell in love with this prose and the women characterized in it. my only note is that i want a sequel highlighting more racially diverse women and nonbinary folk. this book evokes a sense of rage, empathy, fascination, and a deep level of understanding. you can never totally walk in someone else’s shoes but this book gets pretty damn close.
