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

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

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 Amazon.com’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.
