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.

Very interesting book about Mormon fundamentalist polygamists. It manages to be both entertaining and informative at the same time. It loses steam about 2/3 of the way through, but still manages to provide something worth reading.
