The result of this lifestyle and society is a social order which is free of conflict especially wat and free of domination. Herland is highly recommended for those who are interested in feminist and/or utopian novels and those who enjoy the writings of Charlotte Perkins Gilman.
Ayelet Waldman's A Really Good Day paints an excrutiating picture of how our over-prescribed, addicted, and criminalized drug system has shadowed the ways that certain drugs can help us and not harm us. An excellent read for anyone who takes drugs, likes drugs, and who might have experience with vicious mood swings!
