When a husband convinces his wife to join him in a tryst with another woman, there are unintended consequences in this sharply observed erotic tale about the challenges of modern marriage

As a divorce lawyer for Manhattan’s elite, David Greenfield is privy to the intimate, dirty details of failed marriages. He knows he’s lucky to be married to Blair—a Barnard dean and the mother of their college-age daughter, she is a woman he loves more today than he did when they tied the knot.
Then seductive photographer Jean Coin asks David to be her lover for 6 weeks, until she leaves for Timbuktu. Tempted, David reasons that “it’s not cheating if your wife’s there.” A 1-night threesome would relieve the pressure of monogamy without wrecking their marriage. What harm could come of fulfilling his longtime sexual fantasy?

Editorial Reviews

“[Married Sex] is a skillfully written, light-hearted and clever story that manages to be steamy but never salacious. . . . All characters, even the brief appearances of the minor, mostly comic ones, are drawn so well that we sense their uncharted depths.” —The New York Times Book Review “Kornbluth is the essential flaneur of American cultural mores . . . ever striking the perfect harmony between wit and charm with an eye that misses nothing.” —Janet Fitch, New York Times–bestselling author of White Oleander “Some readers will love this book for the sex . . . others will be more attracted to the Big Apple wisecracking. . . . If you like your sexy books soft-core, highbrow, and bi-curious, here’s a hot couple hours for you.” —Kirkus Reviews   “Intelligent, sexy, a walk on the smart side.” —Jackie Collins, New York Times–bestselling author
