A compelling, honest, intriguing and anonymous collection of memoirs about one of our seven deadliest sins: adultery.
By that time we were hopelessly involved with each other against all reason, all sense. We were madly in love, in lust, in over our heads. And we were married, but not to each other.'
I wasn't looking for anyone; I had no reason to look. I had been happily married to my childhood sweetheart for thirty years it never occurred to me to look. But, when it happened, I felt like I had been found.'
infidelity is not just another thing that happens. It is the worst thing that happens.'
It's a love I underrated; strong enough to stay; vast enough to forgive.'
It's one of the oldest stories in the world. It's in Shakespeare, the Bible, literature of every age and nation; it's in the gossip mags and the agony pages. Boy meets girl, but sometimes, a little while later, boy meets another girl. Or girl marries boy but finds herself drawn to someone else. Does she stay or does she go?
Can anyone in a relationship say they have never been tempted to stray at some time or another? Or feared being strayed from? What secrets are we hiding in our hearts? What happens when fantasy becomes flesh, when hearts are broken and lives are ruined?
Naked is the ultimate confessional: a collection of accounts of adultery and infidelity told by those who gave in to their secret desires; those who were cheated on; by friends or children embroiled in the affairs; even by those who got no further than temptation.
Searing confessions from the unrepentant, the guilt-stricken, the bewildered, the forgiven, the abandoned and the damned, Naked is a breathtaking, enthralling and painfully honest glimpse into the heart at its most vulnerable, by writers both published and unknown, all anonymous.
