All over the world women are discovering they have the power. With a flick of the fingers they can inflict terrible pain – even death. Suddenly, every man on the planet finds they’ve lost control. The Day of the Girls has arrived – but where will it end? With this single twist, the four lives at the heart of Naomi Alderman’s shocking and visceral novel are utterly transformed, and we look at the world in an entirely new light. What if the power to hurt were in women’s hands? The iconic bestseller, winner of the Women’s Prize, and soon-to-be-TV series, The Power is a truly extraordinary modern classic.
