Sophie Mackintosh & Leni Zumas (2018 Event)

Fans of Naomi Alderman’s The Power will appreciate these ambitious political novels about women defying restrictions. Sophie Mackintosh’s The Water Cure centres on three women raised in total isolation and the men who come to find them. Leni Zumas’s Red Clocks sees four women drawn together in resistance in an imagined America where abortion is illegal and a new law grants property rights to every embryo. Hear the pair discuss their stories in this event recorded live at the 2018 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
