Book Launch: Rachel Krantz presents Open: An Uncensored Memoir of Love, Liberation, and Non-Monogamy
In conversation with Jen Winston
Can we have both freedom and love? Comfort and lust? Is a relationship ever equal? And is the pleasure worth the pain? 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. In Open, her nonfiction debut, Krantz explores these questions with an unflinching eye and page-turning storytelling, tracing her search to understand what non-monogamy would do to her heart, her mind, and her life through interviews with scientists, psychologists, and people living and loving outside the mainstream. Hailed as a “polyamorous coming-of-age story [that] crackles with equal parts erotic energy and searching commentary” (Terrence Real) and a “necessary addition to the canon of intimate memoirs” (Lux Alptraum), Open is an unprecedented, unflinching, and groundbreaking new memoir from the award-winning journalist and founding editor of Bustle, who joins Greenlight (virtually!) in a conversation with Jen Winston (Greedy: Notes from a Bisexual Who Wants Too Much) on non-monogamy, bisexuality, recording one's life, gaslighting, writing a memoir in a post #MeToo era—not to be missed!

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. Intrigued and more than a little nervous, Rachel decided to see whether their love could coexist with the freedom to date other people. Could they strike an exquisite balance between intimacy and independence, and find a way to feel passion for one another once the honeymoon phase ended?
A hilarious and whip-smart collection of essays, offering an intimate look at bisexuality, gender, and, of course, sex. Perfect for fans of Lindy West, Samantha Irby, and Rebecca Solnit—and anyone who wants, and deserves, to be seen.
