Regina Black discusses her new book “The Art of Scandal”
A new book by Regina Black, The Art of Scandal, explores the complex motivations of women who stay in relationships after being betrayed. The book tells the story of a woman in the public eye who is privately dealing with a betrayal that causes her to question everything about her life and identity.
Black said in a recent interview with Hachette Book Group that she was inspired to write the book after thinking about high-profile scandals involving women who stood by their powerful husbands while the world questioned their motives for doing so. She wanted to answer the question of “Why would someone stay married after being publicly humiliated?” in an interesting but also very human way.

The interview also touched on Black’s own experiences with art and how it has shaped her as a writer. She said that art has always been a way for her to express herself in ways that she didn’t feel comfortable doing in real life. She grew up in a single-parent household with limited access to museums, plays or concerts, but she found ways to make art a part of her life.
Black noted that while scandals can be entertaining to read about, they can also have serious consequences for those involved.
When asked about her writing process, Black revealed that she likes to start with a character and build the story around them. She also emphasised the importance of research, saying that she spent a lot of time reading about real-life scandals to inform her writing.
The Art of Scandal promises to be a thrilling read for anyone interested in the world of high society scandals. With its focus on complex characters and intricate plotlines, the book is sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats.
