Described as eloquent, graphic - and sometimes even poignant by Newsweek, and as [perhaps] one of the most erotic books ever written by Playboy, it drew international attention for its audacity, and the apparently superhuman sangfroid required of Millet and her partner, Jacques Henrie, with whom she had an extremely public and active open relationship. Millets follow-up answers the first books implicit question: how do you avoid jealousy? I had love at home, Millet explains. I sought only pleasure in the world outside. But one day she discovered a letter in their apartment that made clear Jacques was seriously involved with someone else. Jealousy details the crisis provoked by this discovery, and Millets attempts to reconcile her need for freedom and sexual liberation with the very real heartache that Jacquess infidelity caused. If The Sexual Life of Catherine M. seemed to disregard emotion, Jealousy is its radical complement: the paradoxical confession of a libertine who discovers that love, in any of its forms, can have a dark side.
