Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction

2017 Winner:
'The Power'

Naomi Alderman has won the 2017 Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction for her book, The Power.

What would happen if women suddenly possessed a fierce new power?

In The Power, the world is a recognizable place: there's a rich Nigerian boy who lounges around the family pool; a foster kid whose religious parents hide their true nature; an ambitious American politician; a tough London girl from a tricky family. But then a vital new force takes root and flourishes, causing their lives to converge with devastating effect. Teenage girls now have immense physical power--they can cause agonizing pain and even death. And, with this small twist of nature, the world drastically resets.
