The Stepford Wives (1972) is grim portait of America after the 1960s, “a horrific Satire set in a US suburb whose men – aroused by the threat of feminism – have turned their womenfolk into compliant Robots” — SFE.
Basis for the 1975 film starring Katharine Ross, Peter Masterson, and Paula Prentiss; and the 2004 remake with Nicole Kidman, Matthew Broderick, and Bette Midler.

Inscribed by the author to Random House editor Jim Silberman: “Dear Jim, Whatever we’ve got here, it’s better because of your wisdom and persistence, Ira”.
