Evidence of the Affair by Taylor Jenkins Reid

December 10, 1976

Dear Mr. David Mayer,

My name is Carrie Allsop. Please accept my apologies for contacting you out of the blue. I am writing to ask a quite humbling favor. I recently found some love letters in my husband’s briefcase that I believe to be from your wife, Janet.

I suspect my husband, Ken Allsop, met your wife at a medial conference in Coronado three months ago. It seems as if they have been sleeping together since then. I have come to this conclusion because the letters from your wife to my husband include reverences to a relationship of a sexual nature.


I usually don’t read or listen to books like this but when I saw Susie post about this book I found the aspect of the spouses of the two having an affair intriguing. It’s a short story at only 1 hr. 19 min.

  1. I’m glad you tried it. I’ll try anything by TJR!

  2. WOW, quite the intro; I’m definitely curious. Here’s my pick:

  3. I keep noticing this book in the Prime free read section because I’m drawn to the cover, but I wasn’t sure if it would be my kind of book. But maybe I will try it since it is a short story.

  4. This is not a choice of subject matter for me either. But the intro is intriguing. I look forward to your thoughts.

  5. Wow! That could open a whole can of worms. I’d keep reading for sure. Thanks.

  6. That’s a good beginner because maybe things aren’t as they appear!

  7. Interesting intro.

    • I would not usually read a book about an affair, but since it’s supposed to be about their spouses communicating, it sounded unusual.

  8. I didn’t have a chance to participate this week, but I love the sound of this book. It really looks good.
