about this item

Louisa Leontiades combines memoir and retrospective in A World In Us, a guided tour of non-monogamy in the flesh. She and her husband Gilles love each other, but their marriage is going nowhere. They decide to explore polyamory: The idea that it’s possible to be in love with multiple people at once. They fall for another couple and try to forge a life together as a quad. But their liberation from the constraints of their unhappy marriage comes with a price. They are challenged in ways they didn’t expect, and their experimentation forces them to accept a new understanding of themselves and each other. This chronicle of four people’s joy, conflict, and mistakes in pursuit of a utopia of limitless love is followed by Louisa’s letters to her younger self. Sometimes love and good intention isn’t enough?hearts can be broken, and even the tallest dream castle can catch fire. Do you cut your losses and return to monogamy, or do you rise from the ashes? Is an open relationship a recipe for desolation, or does it offer experience and wisdom to pursue a life that will most fulfill the heart? In this compilation of her previous works The Husband Swap and Lessons in Love and Life to My Younger Self, Louisa offers candid insight into the polyamorous heart.
