As promised, here is the first of the book giveaways this week. If you're participating in the Summer Reading Thing, you are eligible to win this book.
The Stepford Wives by Ira Levin
This was a hit when it was first published and saw new life when made into a movie a few years ago. The movie, however, strayed from the plot of the book a bit.
All the beautiful people live in the idyllic village of Stepford, Connecticut, an affluent suburban Eden populated with successful, satisfied hubbys and their beautiful, dutiful wives. For Joanna Eberhart, a recent arrival with her husband and two children, it all seems too perfect to be true -- from the sweet, accommodating Welcome Wagon lady to all those cheerful, friendly faces in the supermarket checkout lines. But just beneath the town's flawless surface, something is sordid and wrong -- something abominable with roots in the local Men's Association. And it may already be too late for Joanna to save herself from being devoured by Stepford's hideous perfection.
Mass market size, paperback. Very gently read copy. Can't even tell. Looks brand new. If you're interested in winning this book, leave a comment.
