Under the Covers: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Sex (But Didn't Know to Ask)

The Other Woman
By Victoria Zackheim
288 pages; Grand Central Publishing

"Invite the bitch to dinner" is one wickedly brash survival strategy in The Other Woman: Twenty-one Wives, Lovers, and Others Talk Openly About Sex, Deception, Love, and Betrayal, edited by Victoria Zackheim (Warner). Among the star turns in this unusually frank and furious collection of essays are Pam Houston’s "Not Istanbul," a hypothetical journey into an impossibly complicated relationship ("Here’s the thing about the other woman. She lives inside your head") and Connie May Fowler’s "The Uterine Blues," a savory bit of rancor from a woman scorned.
