The Power is set in a world in which women gain the power to electrocute at will, and questions whether women would abuse power any differently to men, given the chance. The novel follows four main characters: Roxy, the daughter of a London crime lord; Tunde, a journalism student in Lagos; Allie, from the southern states of the US and Margo, a low-level politician. The story tackles some of the biggest issues of our times, including religion, gender politics and censorship.
The Power is the first science fiction novel to win the £30,000 (A$51,542) Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction which is presented annually to the best novel of the year written in English by a woman.
