Revisionist Herstory: Everywhere Is Stepford (Chuck Palahniuk’s 2011 Intro to Ira Levin’s The Stepford Wives)

Bookmark and Share

In the British reprint of Ira Levin’s 1972 satire The Stepford Wives, Chuck Palahniuk – whose book The Fight Club was the basis for the movie of the same name – wrote an introduction. For those of our faithful readers who haven’t read the book, you owe it to yourself to give it a go.

For those who have already completed their reading assignments, scoot on over to’s Kindle preview to take a look at what Mr. Palahniuk has to say. It’s only about 3 pages. It talks about what has taken place since the book’s inception: the climate of Women’s Liberation back in 1972 vs what is considered “a liberated woman” of today.
