"I found myself gasping, raging and plummeting right alongside her….Catherine Texier tells a horrifying story here, beautifully and rivetingly."
–Francisco Goldman, author of The Ordinary Seaman
"By turns, disturbing, exhilarating, mesmerizing and always utterly impossible to put down."
–Anne Lamott, author of Bird by Bird and Crooked Little Heart
"The surprise in Texier’s recollection of the end is her generosity of spirit, her…attempts to understand and empathize with the man who is betraying her and to even imagine the position of the…other woman. "
–Elizabeth Wurtzel, author of Prozac Nation and Bitch
"Texier’s book/diary of betrayal is an open, emotional account of our deepest fears as women, as lovers, and, ultimately, as humans."
