The Life Swap
LET'S SWAP LIVES began the ad Nancy Weber placed in The Village Voice in February, 1973. Thirty-one, a swinging single writer, happy but yearning, Nancy wanted another woman to witness her life from within while Nancy was living a whole new kind of existence-loving strangers as her own (including kids, she hoped), doing other work, assuming a different dailiness. She and Micki Wrangler, a psychologist in an open marriage, swapped lives for one tumultuous week. Before reality TV, there was reality and The Life Swap recounts all the intimate details of an adventure often imitated but never equaled.
"This book is the memoir of one of the bravest acts of literary guerilla warfare it has ever been my pleasure to encounter."
