Originally published in 1974, If You’ve Ever Loved a Married Man, which captures all those wonderful highs and tormented lows that only a married man- single woman love affair can produce, became an instant classic, with excerpts appearing in several women’s magazines, including W and Cosmopolitan. As the author puts it, this book is dedicated to those like me . . . who thought it would work. It's not a diary, nor a collection of loving poems. It is a bound assortment of confused emotions.
