The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires: A Novel - Grady Hendrix, Bahni Turpin

I've just read a chapter where the husbands of the women in the book club behave (entirely believably, I'm afraid) like a group of pompous, patronising, patriarchal pricks, treating their assembled wives like children needing correction from wiser heads.

 

I think, in its way, it's one of the most disturbing scenes in the book so far.

 

I'm going to put the book away for tonight to give myself time to digest that. 

 

Right now, I think the women should make the suspected vampire a second priority and come together to devise a way of teaching their husbands the need to respect the women they're married to. Except most of the ways I can immediately think of to do that would turn the women into widows.
