Book Title: The Lesson
Desc:

The adjustment bureau is snowed under with work the moral police force is on the prowl. The country but most of all the capital, must live by the Conduct Book. But it isn't easy. Despite all the efforts of these organizations to maintain peace and social order, people, especially women, continue to flout the law – they ask for divorces, dress provocatively, drink with men and attempt to avoid marriage and childbearing. But there's a one - man army, more effective than the entire moral police force put together, who will bring law to the land. A vigilante who has his own methods. No matter how many wanton, difficult women there are, he will persevere for the greater good. He will shame them like they have never been shamed before. And when one particular woman's rebellion threatens to spiral out of control, he's called upon to remedy the situation and teach her a lesson. The Lesson is a dystopian satire on the violence that women live with, structural, systemic and even just the everyday sort. It is a book that will remind you that, after all these years, Big Brother is still watching you.
