What does it matter if Louise DeSalvo is pious or promiscuous? She lays her hands on the reader. She seduces. I’m convinced-or is it healed? -Mirabella

“Tart and entertaining. . . . An intelligent and thought-provoking inquiry into why sexual infidelity will always fascinate us.”-Publishers Weekly

“Face it: No matter how faithful you are, you’ve thought about infidelity. But after reading Adultery, you’ll never think about it the same way again. In this absorbing exploration of marriage and autonomy, Louise DeSalvo exposes the secret to a successful partnership: valuing it, and valuing yourself.”-Leora Tanenbaum, author of Slut! Growing Up Female with a Bad Reputation

“DeSalvo’s moving literary exploration is great preparation for her real work: resolving the betrayal in her own marriage.”-Rebecca Miller, Library Journal
