The Stepford Wives
The Stepford Wives by Ira Levin
Photographer Joanne Eberhart has just moved home to Stepford with her family, but for some reason she is having a lot of difficulty making new friends. As far as Joanne is concerned, there's something peculiar about the women of Stepford. They don't have time for a cup of coffee and certainly not for a chat: there's too much cleaning and housework to be done. And even though it's the swinging sixties, feminism seems to have passed every one of them by. As Joanne's isolation grows, she begins to think she and her friend Bobbie might be the only liberated women left in Stepford. But when Bobbie very suddenly turns into one of the Stepford Wives too, Joanne begins to fear that something sinister is at work - and that her own days of freedom might be numbered too.
