Points
  • From Eve and her apple to Madame Bovary or the Scarlet Letter, stories of adulterous women have long fascinated and scandalised readers, with most heroines meeting a tragic end.
  • Yet author Gina Frangello wanted to avoid telling a cautionary tale with a neat and happy ending, as she recounted the events that shook up her marriage and her sense of self in her unflinching memoir "Blow Down Your House".
