    OFJCC Arts and Culture State of Affairs Esther Perel

    Esther Perel is recognized as one of today's most insightful and provocative voices on personal and professional relationships. A celebrated couples therapist who has helmed a private practice in New York City since 1983, she has over three decades of experience navigating the intricacies of love and desire. Her international bestseller Mating in Captivity has been translated into 26 languages. 

    Perel is a dynamic and provocative speaker on the international stage, with two critically praised TED talks that have reached over 17 million viewers. She has consulted on the Golden Globe-winning Showtime series The Affair and is also Executive Producer and host of the Audible original series Where Should We Begin?, in which she broadcasts intimate one-off counseling sessions with real-life couples. Perel has been featured in publications across five continents, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Le Monde, The Guardian, The New Yorker and Vogue. She is also a frequent guest on radio and television shows, including NPR's Brian Lehrer Show, Oprah, The Today Show, Dr. Oz and The Colbert Report. Learn more at estherperel.com.

    Esther will discuss her new book The State of Affairs: Rethinking Infidelity. Affairs, Perel writes, have a lot to teach us about relationships—what we expect, what we think we want and what we feel entitled to. Through examining illicit love from multiple angles, The State of Affairs invites readers into an honest, enlightened and entertaining exploration of modern marriage in its many variations. "Love is messy; infidelity more so," Perel concludes, "But it is also a window, like none other, into the crevices of the human heart."
