Jenny on the Block

From the looks of her credits, Dallas author Jenny Block has written for danged near every publication in town -- though, surely, nothing she's done thus far will attract the attention sure to accompany the June publication of her book Open: Love, Sex, and Life in an Open Marriage. It began as this 2006 piece, subtitled "It began with a threesome. And became her key to happily ever after." And from there, well, came the book, which thus far has gotten decent advance notice with a few caveats; notes Publishers Weekly, "Readers are likely to be challenged and provoked by this book's insights into the surprising fluidities in fidelity and sexuality, but might find its repetitive, slightly glib delivery better suited for a magazine article than a book-length manifesto." And, look, it's not every day we get to use the word "polyamorous." --Robert Wilonsky
