When Rachel Krantz met and fell for Adam, he told her that he was looking for a committed partnership – just one that did not include exclusivity.

Excited but a little trepidatious, Rachel set out to see whether love and a serious relationship can coexist beyond the familiar borders of monogamy. This is her open and honest true story.

Now, in her debut memoir, she chronicles her dive into non-monogamy. With fly-on-the-wall detail and extraordinary perceptiveness, OPEN takes us inside Brooklyn parties and into the wider swinger and polyamory community. Armed with her journalistic instincts, detailed journal entries and interviews with experts and therapists, Krantz also breaks new ground in confronting the unique ways tacit abuse and gaslighting can manifest when things get so complex.

Unflinching and brazen, OPEN asks what liberation really looks like, and whether the pleasure really is worth the pain.

Reviews

In Open, Rachel Krantz invites us into her deepest privacy as she explores her body and soul, fears and ecstasies, desires and disappointments. This is a starkly naked story of a young woman's adventure of self-discovery, told with a striking lack of shame or apology. Highly recommended.
