Submission seems to be the new popular 'theme' in women's literature. If you thought 'Fifty Shades of Grey' was bad, brace yourselves. The book du jour, penned by an Italian author and journalist, Costanza Miriano, is causing mayhem in Spain.

'Casate y se Sumisa' (Get Married and be Submissive) has raised the hackles of feminists the length and breadth of Spain. The book, which was a bestseller in Italy, has been translated into Spanish and is currently sprinting up the bestseller list. It currently lies at number 3 in the religious titles and number 4 in the family and health section of Amazon in Spain.

The book, a 'how-to' for newlywed women, is not what you would expect for the modern, 21st-century housewife. In fact, it would probably be more appealing and indeed applicable to the cavewomen of old.
