Thy Neighbor's Wife

Author(s): Professor Gay Talese


The provocative classic work newly updatedAn intimate personal odyssey across America's changing sexual landscapeWhen first published, Gay Talese's 1981 groundbreaking work, Thy Neighbor's Wife, shocked a nation with its powerful, eye-opening revelations about the sexual activities and proclivities of the American public in the era before AIDS. A marvel of journalistic courage and craft, the book opened a window into a new world built on a new moral foundation, carrying the reader on a remarkable journey from the Playboy Mansion to the Supreme Court, to the backyards and bedrooms of suburbia--through the development of the porn industry, the rise of the -swinger- culture, the legal fight to define obscenity, and the daily sex lives of -ordinary- people. It is the book that forever changed the way Americans look at themselves and one another.
