Product description

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)

"sympathetically satirises this complicated landscape of contemporary feminism...warm and witty, and necessary...With affection and generosity, Wolitzer exposes the limits of power through a handful of well-meant lives and she leaves us uneasy. The sense that we may have smashed a glass ceiling, but now are standing in the shards, discreetly bleeding" (Eva Wiseman Observer)

"No novelist I can think of has majored on the group portrait with quite such verve, wit and sympathy as Meg Wolitzer" (Ferdinand Mount Spectator)

"Wolitzer is an astute observe of cultural nuance, particularly around gender and inequality" (Lucy Atkins Sunday Times)

"Wolitzer is an irresistibly charming novelist, a keen, affectionate examiner of society" (Alexandra Schwartz New Yorker)

"An ambitious overview of the women's movement...her writing is peppered with wit and her send-up of various sacred cows is often funny" (Kate Saunders The Times)

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.
