A New York journalist's immersive account of the behind-closed-doors world of Polyamory.

***** 'A sexy, messy, necessary look at polyamory' -Advocate

'All the makings of a juicy beach read- romance, sex, deception, and twists - except it's an account of a real-life open relationship.' -VOGUE

Rachel Krantz is a 27-year-old journalist living in Brooklyn when she meets Adam, who is non-monogamous. The concept isn't entirely new to her and the possibility of that kind of freedom is as exciting as it is daunting. If there's a chance that she could date, have sex and connect with different people alongside a loving and supportive long-term relationship, why wouldn't she seize it?

In intimate detail, OPEN takes us inside the highs and lows of Rachel's journey of self-discovery and the different ways power dynamics manifest when the rules of engagement have fundamentally changed. Sharp, provocative, and engrossing, it asks what true sexual liberation looks like, and if the pleasure is ever worth the pain.

'A starkly naked story of a young woman's adventure of self-discovery, told with a striking lack of shame or apology. Highly recommended.' -Dr. Christopher Ryan, author of Sex At Dawn

'Smart, original, ambitious, and deeply absorbing memoir... She succeeds by bringing us deftly and irresistibly into her most intimate pains and joys, stretching our understanding of what commitment and autonomy mean.'
-Dr. Wednesday Martin, author of Untrue & Primates of Park Avenue

'The only problem I had picking up this book was putting it back down. Open compels, entertains, and may ultimately transform its readers.' -
Dr. Terry Real, internationally recognised Family Therapist, author, and founder of the Relational Life Institute
