Thy Neighbor's Wife
by Gay Talese




Overview -

The provocative classic work newly updated

An intimate personal odyssey across America's changing sexual landscape

When 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.
