The Female Persuasion
by Meg Wolitzer
Praise For This Book:
"Much has changed in the feminist movement, and for all women... and this book observes those changes with a gimlet eye." -Time

"Finally, a novel about a complicated relationship that doesn't get nearly enough attention: that between mentor and mentee. Full of Meg Wolitzer's signature acumen and insight." -Esquire

"A novel to get excited about." -The Guardian

"An intricately woven and deeply layered story that follows women who connect, yearn, chase their ambitions, navigate structures of existing power while claiming their own, and who write their own stories-stories that ignite their imaginations and, sometimes, look vastly different from what they first planned." -Southern Living

"This dazzling novel about embracing womanhood and ambition is a timely read." -The Chicago Review of Books

"Wolitzer tackles a litany of timely topics, from unwanted sexual advances to the underrepresentation of women in film to Gamergate-type abuse." -amNewYork

"Hurrah! Meg Wolitzer is back! And her new novel about feminism, female power, and mentorship is almost uncannily timely." -Chicago Reader

"Wolitzer is one of those rare novelists who is able to capture the zeitgeist... A master weaver of story lines." -The Millions

"Ambitious and satisfying...This insightful and resonant novel explores what it is to both embrace womanhood and suffer because of it." -Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Timely reading as circumstances revivify the fight for women's rights." -Library Journal
