‘A page-turner that succeeds both at character and ideas’ Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

A warm and immersive novel about ambition, power, women, friendship and finding your place in the world, from the bestselling author of The Wife and The Interestings.

Greer Kadetsky is a shy college student when she meets the person who will change her life.
Faith Frank, an influential and glamorous figure from the women’s movement, inhabits a very different world to Greer’s. But after a chance encounter Faith singles Greer out and invites her into her life, leading her down a thrilling path as it winds towards and away from her meant-to-be love story with high school sweetheart Cory and the future she had always imagined.

Expansive and wise, compassionate and witty, The Female Persuasion is about the spark we all believe is flickering inside us, waiting to be seen and fanned by the right person at the right time.

Review:

"The Female Persuasion has gone straight into my library of favourite novels ever, on a shelf next to David Copperfield, Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant, Lonesome Dove, and Love in a Time of Cholera" (Nick Hornby)

"'The novel’s timeliness cannot be understated...tight but inclusive, and deserves to be placed on shelves alongside such ornate modern novels beginning in college as A Little Life, The Secret History and The Marriage Plot... But when all is said and done, Wolitzer is an infinitely capable creator of human identities that are as real as the type on this page, and her love of her characters shines more brightly than any agenda" (Lena Dunham New York Times Book Review)

"The Female Persuasion is wonderfully dense and wise, a page-turner that succeeds both at character and ideas. It felt true to life" (Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Guardian)

"Deft and funny...trenchant, clever, displaying a pitch-perfect recollection of the idealism of early adulthood and what life subsequently does to undo it" (Emma Brockes Guardian)

"From the very first page of any novel by Meg Wolitzer, you feel in safe hands. She is skilful and confident...she is exceptionally gifted in the neglected craft of plotting...like a modern-day Edith Wharton, she has an instinctive understanding that tragedy and comedy are different sides of the same coin... How could you fail to love such a writer?" (Craig Brown Mail on Sunday)

About the Author:

Meg Wolitzer is the author of several acclaimed novels, including The Uncoupling (‘tingles with playfulness and wicked observation’ Independent), The Wife (‘has you howling with recognition’ Allison Pearson), The Position (‘one of the best and most human books I’ve read all year’ Erica Wagner) and The Ten-Year Nap (‘as incisive and pitiless and clear-eyed a chronicler of female-male tandems as Philip Roth or John Updike' Chicago Tribune). Most recently, The Interestings was a New York Times bestseller. She lives in New York City.
