“[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…[She] is an infinitely capable creator of human identities that are as real as the type on this page.” -The New York Times Book Review

“Equal parts cotton candy and red meat, in the best way.” -People

From the New York Times-bestselling author of The Interestings, an electric, multilayered novel about ambition, power, friendship, and mentorship, and the romantic ideals we all follow deep into adulthood, not just about who we want to be with, but who we want to be.


To be admired by someone we admire - we all yearn for this: the private, electrifying pleasure of being singled out by someone of esteem. But sometimes it can also mean entry to a new kind of life, a bigger world.

Greer Kadetsky is a shy college freshman when she meets the woman she hopes will change her life. Faith Frank, dazzlingly persuasive and elegant at sixty-three, has been a central pillar of the women’s movement for decades, a figure who inspires others to influence the world. Upon hearing Faith speak for the first time, Greer- madly in love with her boyfriend, Cory, but still full of longing for an ambition that she can’t quite place- feels her inner world light up. And then, astonishingly, Faith invites Greer to make something out of that sense of purpose, leading Greer down the most exciting path of her life as it winds toward and away from her meant-to-be love story with Cory and the future she’d always imagined.

Charming and wise, knowing and witty, Meg Wolitzer delivers a novel about power and influence, ego and loyalty, womanhood and ambition. At its heart, The Female Persuasion is about the flame we all believe is flickering inside of us, waiting to be seen and fanned by the right person at the right time. It’s a story about the people who guide and the people who follow (and how those roles evolve over time), and the desire within all of us to be pulled into the light.

THE MEG WOLITZER BRAND: With The Interestings, Meg Wolitzer became a household name associated with a level of prestige her career had not seen before. Wolitzer is widely acclaimed, both critically and commercially, and this novel is fiercely awaited - the perfect next step in her steeply ascendant trajectory.

A BIG, HEARTY READ: Like The Interestings, the novel perfectly balances weight and scope, humor and emotional value. Told from multiple perspectives, spanning full lifetimes, the novel feels big and important as well as moving and deeply satisfying.

TIMELY AND RELEVANT: At a time when women’s rights are in jeopardy, and women’s collective voices are rising in response, there is a palpable need for a novel that subtly looks at feminism in all its dimensions, written with a keen, non-judgmental cultural eye. Just as The Ten-Year Nap observed and described the challenges of working and non-working mothers without ever taking sides, The Female Persuasion offers a sharp and insightful observation of the times, particularly through the lens of a young woman. A revealing story of a web of relationships set against the challenges of today.

Meg Wolitzer is the New York Times-bestselling author of The Interestings, The Uncoupling, The Ten-Year Nap, The Position, The Wife, and Sleepwalking. She is also the author of the young adult novel Belzhar. Wolitzer lives in New York City.

Praise for The Interestings:

“Remarkable…[The Interestings’s] inclusive vision and generous sweep place it among the ranks of books like Jonathan Franzen’s Freedom and Jeffrey Eugenides The Marriage Plot. The Interestings is warm, all-American, and acutely perceptive about the feelings and motivations of its characters, male and female, young and old, gay and straight; but it’s also stealthily, unassumingly, and undeniably a novel of ideas…. With this book [Wolitzer] has surpassed herself.”—The New York Times Book Review
