The Female Persuasion [9781784742362]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

The New York Times bestseller and a BBC Radio 4 Book at Bedtime

'The wit, intelligence and deep feeling of Wolitzer's writing are extraordinary' - Jeffrey Eugenides

Greer didn't really know why Faith took an interest. But what she knew for sure, eventually, was that meeting Faith Frank was the thrilling beginning of everything. It would be a very long time before the unspeakable end.

Greer Kadetsky is a shy college student when she meets the woman who will shape her life. Faith Frank, dazzlingly persuasive and elegant, has been a pillar of the women's movement for decades, a figure who inspires others. Hearing Faith speak for the first time, in a crowded campus chapel, Greer - misunderstood yet full of longing for an ambition that she can't quite place - feels herself changed. And then, astonishingly, Faith invites her to make something out of this new sense of purpose, with a career opportunity that leads her down the most exciting and rewarding 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, and the desire within all of us to be pulled into the light.

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.
