The story of the raid on a Texas polygamist compound has brought new attention to a book by the former wife of the man who oversees the compound elder in the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS). Carolyn Jessop has appeared on several news shows, including the Today Show. The book went on the Amazon list at #23 last week and is currently at #28.

Today, Slate, looks at the book in their “Juicy Bits: How to Read Juicy Books” column. Reserves are building in most places. A trade paperback is scheduled, but it is not due out until August 26.
