Hillary's February 2018 pick
Sometimes a writer has the prescience and talent to deliver just the right book at just the right moment. Naomi Alderman's The Power is one of those books.
Imagine a future, 5000 years form now, which seems to be just like ours, except the power dynamic between men and women has been reversed.
And then imagine an obsequious male writer sends a manuscript to an obnoxious, full-of-herself famous female writer, a manuscript that imagines how, all those millennia ago, women became more powerful than men.
Most of The Power is that book-within-a-book, the story of how women suddenly evolved the ability to project electricity as a weapon, and the ensuing struggle to recreate the world - from religion to government to family - using this new-found power. Brilliant and oh-so readable.
Hard to imagine a more timely book!
