Selling your cheating husband's expensive sports car for $1 on eBay, peeling the labels from all the bottles in his prized wine collection, and posting photos of him around the neighborhood with the caption, "Wives Against Married Men Dating."

They are all actual examples of revenge exacted by wives hurt and angered by their spouse's philandering ways included in The Down and Dirty Dish on Revenge: Serving It Up Nice and Cold to that Lying, Cheating Bastard (St. Martin's Press) by Eva Nagorski '92.

Nagorski appeared in the fourth hour of NBC's Today show, Tuesday, August 25, 2009.
