"Andrea Demot is a gifted, determined young actress who creates a life and career for herself in the wave of theatrical innovation that erupted in Toronto in the 1960's. Believing that an artist with ambition must guard her independence, Andrea chooses to avoid marriage, but she can't ignore love: the arrival of the contraceptive pill in Canada, nudity on Toronto stages and Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique on best-seller lists all pointed to an age of revolutionary freedom for women, men and Canadian theatre. The three main loves of Andrea's life are three married men, each of whom works in the arts. And three times, after the love affair ends, Andrea finds a friend and co-worker in her ex-lover's wife. (Do the wives know? Perhaps.) The examination of love and friendship in My Other Women adds a deeper emotional colour and truth to the story, while Carey's portrait of a time of rebellion and change is sharp, insightful and entertaining."--Back cover.
