Dalma Heyn—cultural critic, psychotherapist and bestselling author, has been on the forefront of change in the lives and loves of postmodern women. Her bestselling books, The Erotic Silence of The American Wife; Marriage Shock: The Transformation of Women into Wives; and Drama Kings: The Men Who Drive Strong Women Crazy, hit a nerve both here and abroad and have been published in 34 languages. As a thought leader whose award-winning columns and intimate interviews with women on the edge—of marriage, of transgression, of despair, of reinvention—her work has been called revolutionary. Her insistence on listening to women, not on experts, has encouraged women to articulate a new paradigm of adult sexuality and helped to revise cultural and “expert” assumptions about women’s lives.
