Katie Women Boston wanting sex Hon. That was only the beginning. In August, following an intense bidding war, Showtime announced it had committed to a series based on the book—with Taddeo as executive producer and writer.
A journalist and contributor to New York magazine and Esquire as well as a fiction writer, Taddeo has won two Pushcart Prizes for her short stories. Single when she began her project, Taddeo, 39, stayed for a stretch in a rundown motel in Indiana, with only her affectionate chocolate lab Roo for company in the course of her reporting, she met and married her husband, a filmmaker and writer, and gave birth to their daughter, who is now four.
Taddeo followed the three women for years, moving to each of their towns for a period so she could immerse herself in their lives. Bostonia spoke with Taddeo, who lives in Litchfield, Conn. Taddeo: I am overwhelmed. I just thought I was writing a quiet book.
It was meditative. I was just someone who wanted to write about the human experience. I wanted to be a short story writer, a teacher, and live in the Cotswolds or something. My friends stopped thinking I had a book contract. It was very difficult, and at the same time, because I feel so nervous in general, sometimes the best thing I can do for myself is to not be inside my own head. Listening to other people helps me.
It helped them to know I was going through things, too. We feel better when we feel that someone else has either been in our position or lived through it. She also spent the most time talking to me, giving me everything, beat by beat… From the moment when she walked into the room [for the support group]…and the way she did not care what the other women thought.
Her parents thought she should just accept what she had in life. That was one of the reasons I was attracted to her and her story. I met a couple of doctors. One of them told me he had a group of women he was performing hormone treatments on. They were losing weight and talking about their husbands, their partners, the way that they felt in their new bodies.
We spoke by telephone when I was still living in New York. She was just a hurt woman, having her own experience. Good or bad, it was hers. That was my point. I gave them each the book with enough time to make changes or ask for omissions or additions. They were brave enough to go out there with this story.
I wanted to sort of find an in-between. She was finding herself in these moments. She was volunteering them because they were important to her. She had not found that kind of sex. She had not found her body in that way. For her to feel sexy, to feel all these feelings that it was making her feel, it was just really important.
That was my point with that. Read another interview with Lisa Taddeo on the Creative Writing program website.
