In The Adultery Handbook, Carol Malyon writes about women, about wished-for happily-ever-after endings, about relationships that struggle because beauty and perfection are so fleeting. This is Carol Malyon's most ambitious look at women and relationships yet, peopled by a disparate group of women who get together every week to tell their stories.
