Letter to the Editor: Toronto Life, April 2013

Toronto Life, April 2013, Letter to the Editor, by Wendy BrownI’m a psychotherapist working in Toronto, and several of my patients have read “My Cheating Heart” and expressed anger over the writer’s selfish actions, as well as sympathy for her husband. Discovering your partner has been cheating on you is a painful blow and can shatter your sense of value, security and pride. Having an affair is like carrying a bomb; you can conceal it and try to keep it from exploding, but ultimately you’re exposing yourself and your loved ones to an enormous risk.

—Wendy Brown, in response to “My Cheating Heart” from Toronto Life, February 2013
