The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer


From the New York Times-bestselling author of The Interestings, an electric novel not just about who we want to be with, but who we want to be.

To be admired by someone we admire – we all yearn for this: the private, electrifying pleasure of being singled out by someone of esteem. But sometimes it can also mean entry to a new kind of life, a bigger world.

“This book hit me like a modern Bell Jar – it was real, honest, and unapologetic about being an adult in today’s world. I wouldn’t describe this book as action-packed, but whose life really is? Instead, Wolitzer covers the big things in life like grief, hope, ambition, love, power, loyalty, and womanhood through the lives of her characters. By the end of The Female Persuasion, I didn’t feel happy per se, but I did feel seen and comfortably at home in life, like I don’t need to worry about where I am and that somehow, it’ll all work out.”
