SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING FRANCES McDORMAND, ROONEY MARA AND BEN WHISHAW

'Don't miss this.' MARGARET ATWOOD 'Tender, enraging and brimming with a bitter wit.' The Times 'An astonishment, a volcano of a novel.' LAUREN GROFF

In a remote Mennonite colony, over a hundred girls and women were knocked unconscious and violated-by what many thought were ghosts or demons-as punishment for their sins. Their accounts were chalked up to 'wild female imagination.'

Women Talking is an imagined response to these real events. When the women learn that they were in fact drugged and attacked by men in their community, they hold a secret meeting in a hayloft. They have two days to make a plan before the rapists are bailed out and brought home: will they dare to escape?

'Profound, affecting stuff.' Sunday Telegraph 'Brave and thoughtful.' Observer 'Beautiful. . . a novel for the times.' LISA McINERNEY
