Secrets and Wives
The Hidden World of Mormon PolygamyBook - 2011
There are some 40,000 Mormon fundamentalists in America today, all of whom cleave to the doctrine of polygamy. But outside of what we see on HBO's Big love and the occasional news story when a scandal breaks, what do we really know about their world? Polygamy is a diaspora--a hidden sprawl--and in Secrets and wives, journalist Sanjiv Bhattacharya gains unprecedented access to these communities.
