The Power

(2016)
A novel by

 

"Electrifying! Shocking! Will knock your socks off! Then you'll think twice, about everything."
Margaret Atwood


LONGLISTED FOR THE BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION

What would happen if women suddenly possessed a fierce new power?


In THE POWER, the world is a recognizable place: there's a rich Nigerian boy who lounges around the family pool; a foster kid whose religious parents hide their true nature; an ambitious American politician; a tough London girl from a tricky family. But then a vital new force takes root and flourishes, causing their lives to converge with devastating effect. Teenage girls now have immense physical power--they can cause agonizing pain and even death. And, with this small twist of nature, the world drastically resets.

From award-winning author Naomi Alderman, THE POWER is speculative fiction at its most ambitious and provocative, at once taking us on a thrilling journey to an alternate reality, and exposing our own world in bold and surprising ways.
