What would happen if women suddenly possessed a fierce new power? In The Power, the world is a recognizable place, but when a vital new force takes root and flourishes, there are devastating effects. 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. Naomi Alderman writes 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.
