'The novel could not be any more timely, even though its length and the completeness of its world suggest to me that it must have been conceived before the recent upheavals and protests. & #8230 The Female Persuasion has gone straight into my library of favorite novels ever, on a shelf next to David Copperfield, Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant, Lonesome Dove, and Love in the Time of Cholera.'  & #8212 Nick Hornby '[ The Female Persuasion& #8217 s] subtle, powerfully ambivalent forays into second-wave feminism, the nature and limits of co-operative action and the intersection between the political and the personal function as depth charges whose ripples continue to rock our unstable little boats. It is a significant contribution to Wolitzer& #8217 s body of work.'  & #8212 The Guardian ' The Female Persuasion is wonderfully dense and wise, a page-turner that succeeds both at character and ideas. It felt true to life.& #8221 & #8212 Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie 'A great book featuring strong, complicated, interesting female characters.' & #8212 Politico   'Meg Wolitzer& #8217 s knowing novel about political awakening came at the right time.' & #8212 People 'Surprises await both generations of women in this smart page-turner.' & #8212 USA Today 'A dynamic, sprawling novel...Wolitzer has always been expert at capturing an emotion in a single image, and in this book she luxuriates in her skill.'  & #8212 The Atlantic 'Meg Wolitzer is the novelist we need right now...[ The Female Persuasion is] the sort of book that comes along in too few authors' careers& #8212 one that makes the writer's intellectual project snap into sharp focus, and with it, the case that their artistry is not merely enjoyable but truly important.'  & #8212 The Washington Post '[Wolitzer] writes in warm, specific prose that neither calls attention to itself nor ignores the mandate of the best books: to tell us things we know in ways we never thought to know them.' & #8212 The  New York Times Book Review 'Uncannily timely, a prescient marriage of subject and moment that addresses a great question of the day: how feminism passes down, or not, from one generation to the next.'  & #8212 The New York Times   'Wolitzer is an irresistibly charming novelist, a keen, affectionate examiner of society.' & #8211 The New Yorker 'A wonderfully solid book, luxuriously long and varied in an almost 19th century kind of way.' & #8212 NPR   '[Wolitzer is] old-fashioned in the best sense, a spiritual descendant of writers like Elizabeth Gaskell and Charlotte Brontë. Her novels blend philosophical matters with acute social commentary, grappling with ideas as robust as the characters she brings to life.'   & #8212 Wall Street Journal Magazine   'Wolitzer& #8217 s social commentary can be as funny as it is queasily on target.' & #8211 USA Today 'Wolitzer's narrative poses difficult questions about feminism using an approach that is direct, generous, and, most importantly, not presuming there is one correct answer. A work of imagination and intelligence that deserves a wide readership.'  & #8212 Los Angeles Review of Books    'Wolitzer's talent as a writer shines in lines that say more in a sentence than most writers do in paragraphs& #8230 One can only hope that her readers & #8212 of the male and female persuasion & #8212 will keep the conversation going after the last page.& #8221 & #8212 Associated Press 'Wolitzer& #8217 s ultra-readable latest illuminates the oceanic complexity of growing up female and ambitious& #8212 and reveals the author& #8217 s substantial insight into the tangles of gender and power.' & #8212 Vogue  'It takes readers to that sweet spot where fiction mirrors reality . . . Filled with lighthearted moments and romantic detours, it& #8217 s equal parts cotton candy and red meat, in the best way.' & #8212 People   '[Wolitzer is] a keen humanist with a singular gift for social observation.' & #8212 Entertainment Weekly 'Big, necessary, and utterly persuasive.'  & #8212 The Boston Globe   'Wolitzer& #8217 s engrossing new novel,  The Female Persuasion, is something of a rebel yell, slapping gender right in the title and confronting the question, What does a feminist look like?& #8230 So when you& #8217 re done binge-reading your copy, hand it off to a fellow literature lover. He& #8217 ll thank you for it.' & #8212 Elle 'A grand work, with immense insight into the loss of idealism, the formation of identity, and the nuances of being a woman today.'   & #8212 InStyle 'I loved the book for the way it portrays every uncharted step of Greer& #8217 s & #8216 find a mentor& #8217 process& #8230 It felt fresh and invigorating to see a familiar woman-to-woman work relationship develop in a novel.' & #8212 The Cut   'It is the messy, painful emotions of this book, rendered by Wolitzer with exacting specificity, that make it so stunning.'   & #8212 Vox   'Wolitzer has always found a way to write engrossing, smart, and breezy books that also cut to the heart of the conundrum of living as a woman in the world.' & #8212 Vulture 'A  little 'The Devil Wears Prada,' a little 'The Affair.'' & #8212 The Skimm 'Compulsively readable.'   & #8212 Paste Magazine 'Absorbing, a page-turner that neatly layers gaps of information to add up to a full, multi-generational drama.& #8221 & #8212 Quartz 'A new feminist classic for the modern era...It's a powerful coming-of-age story that looks at ambition, friendship, identity, desire, and power from the much-needed female lens.' & #8212 Bustle 'The book we needed about the female experience and female friendships in 2018. It& #8217 s funny, compelling, complex, and so incredibly timely.& #8221 & #8212 Hello Giggles   '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& #8212 stories that ignite their imaginations and, sometimes, look vastly different from what they first planned.& #8221 & #8212 Southern Living 'Finally, a novel about a complicated relationship that doesn& #8217 t get nearly enough attention: that between mentor and mentee.  Full of Meg Wolitzer's signature acumen and insight.'  & #8212 Esquire 'Much has changed in the feminist movement, and for all women... and this book observes those changes with a gimlet eye.'  & #8212 Time 'Delves  into mentorship& #8212 and how even the people we admire most can be flawed.' & #8212 Real Simple   'Meg Wolitzer& #8217 s latest is a bildungsroman for the new feminist age, full of ambition, ego, and the power of female mentorship.& #8221 & #8212 Town & Country   'Timely and true.& #8221 & #8211 The New York Post The Female Persuasion  is the best kind of social novel& #8212 a brilliant book about relationships set against a backdrop of principles, movements and change.& #8221 & #8212 Newsday   'A big, fat, delicious book about feminism and the power of female mentorship.& #8221 & #8211 Los Angeles Times   & #8220 Wolitzer is at her best when dropping wry but casual observations.
