Item description for Homewrecker: An Adultery Anthology by Daphne Gottlieb...
Exploring the realities of public piety and private philandering, Homewrecker combines fiction, nonfiction, and poetry to present a multitude of perspectives on adultery and the emotional complexity that affairs entail. Acclaimed contemporary writers share space with fresh talent in its pages, each with a different take on adultery and its aftermath. In "The Other Man," Stephen Elliot remembers the dominatrix who two-timed him with a square. Lori Selke spins steamy erotica in "Sex and the Married Dyke," a story about how quickly queer marriage can degenerate into extramarital queer activity. Neal Pollack's "Confessions of a Dial-up Gigolo" recalls the early days of the Internet when anything seemed possible, even destroying the marriage of someone you've never met.

Reviews - What do customers think about Homewrecker: An Adultery Anthology?
Enlightening and engaging the reader's total attention with its many peculiar real life stories Apr 10, 2006
Homewrecker: An Adultery Reader, deftly edited by San Francisco-based poet Daphne Gottlieb is a thoughtful and thought-provoking collection drawn from many writers contributing their personal experiences and stories of their own life's odd encounters with marriage, cheating, God, erotica, and essentially the interpretation of lovers without villains, victims or innocent bystanders. Enlightening and engaging the reader's total attention with its many peculiar real life stories, Homewrecker ultimately guides the reader through the hardships and relentless engagements of the unfaithful, unfazeable, and all-seeing mentality of the cheater. An insightful body of observations on human sexuality, Homewrecker: An Adultery Reader is very strongly recommended as reference or understanding to those in relationships which cannot end, and require some sort of relief or alternative engagement.
