An irreverent and hilarious journey around the world to examine how and why people cheat on their spouses

You probably already suspect that Americans are uniquely conflicted about adultery, but did you know:
  • Russian spouses don't count beach resort flings as infidelity?
  • South Africans consider drunkenness an adequate excuse for extramarital sex?
  • Japanese businessmen believe, "if you pay, it's not cheating"?
Former journalist Pamela Druckerman interviewed psychologists, sex researchers, marriage counselors, and adulterers of all nations and concludes that Americans are, indeed, the least adept at having affairs, have the most trouble enjoying them, and suffer the most in the aftermath. Lust in Translation is her funny and fact-filled world tour of infidelity that will give whole new meaning to the phrase "practicing monogamy."
