Power

By Naomi Alderman
400 Pages
Paperback

"Electrifying! Shocking! Will knock your socks off! Then you'll think twice, about everything."
Margaret Atwood,
"Fierce and unsettling...Through immersive prose and a riveting plot, Alderman explores how power corrupts everyone: those who gain it, and those resisting its loss."
Radhika Jones, New York Times Book Review
"Richly imagined, ambitious, and propulsively written."
Sophie Gilbert, The Atlantic
"I was riveted by every page. Alderman's prose is immersive and, well, electric, and I felt a closed circuit humming between the book and me as I read."

Amal El-Mohtar, New York Times Book Review
"An instant classic of speculative fiction... Smart, readable and joyously achieved."
Justine Jordan, Guardian

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.
