I just finished reading The Other Woman, and I have to say, it was fascinating.
I read about it on E Tells Tales and it immediately caught my attention.
A bit about the book, from Amazon:
She's been called the harpy, 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 21 insightful essays (20 written specifically for this anthology) from the list of America'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.
Some of the essays were so raw, some made me angry, some made me sad, others were funny.
Either way, they were real...and that's what I enjoyed most about them.
In particular, "Palm Springs" by Mary Jo Eustace (the ex-wife of Dean, from Tori & Dean)
shared the moment that he told her he was leaving her for Tori.
Her rawness and details were so captivating.
This is an interesting, even fun read.
I took my time, reading an essay or two each night.
It's fascinating to see different points of views on a very touchy and emotional subject.
