Iconic couples’ therapist and bestselling author of Mating in Captivity Esther Perel is back with a brand-new book, this one focusing on the passionate taboo of relationships and monogamy: infidelity. She argues that affairs have a lot to teach us about the human heart, from what we expect to what we think we want. They offer a different kind of window into our personal and cultural attitudes about love, lust, and commitment. Through examining this illicit love from various angles, Perel invites readers into an exploration of modern marriage in its many variations.
Perel shows that an affair can rob a couple of more than just their relationship yet, this all-too-common human experience remains poorly understood. What are we to make of this taboo—universally forbidden yet universally practiced? Why do people cheat—even those in happy marriages? Is there such a thing as an affair-proof marriage? Is it possible to love more than one person at once? Can an affair ever help a marriage?

Join us in the Rare Book Room as Perel discusses these questions and more!

Esther Perel is a Belgian psychotherapist notable for exploring the tension between the need for security and the need for freedom in human relationships. She has promoted the concept of Erotic Intelligence in a best selling book which has been translated into 24 languages. She has given two TED talks which have received more than 10 million views on TED's website.
