Offred can remember a time when she lived with her husband and daughter and had a job, before she lost even her own name....

Jenna Sauers wrote an article in Marie Claire about just such a gathering in Long Island's exclusive Hamptons. Fifty guests were invited to a mansion on the beach for potential swinging and sexcapades. But what actually happened.... Well, Susie thinks this party was way too tame.

    Russ Harris offers a surprising solution to low self-confidence, shyness, and insecurity: Rather than trying to "get over" our fears, he says, the secret is to form a new and wiser relationship with them. Paradoxically, it's only when we stop struggling against our fearfulness that we begin to find lasting freedom from it.
