Ashley Audrain’s first novel The Push is one of the most anticipated debuts of the year. Described as a ’publishing sensation’, it has broken records for distribution deals, film and TV rights and it’s already being translated into 17 different languages. Why? Because in it, Audrain dares to answer an unaskable question – what happens when a mother doesn’t love her own child? Cast in the same mould as We Need to Talk About Kevin, Audrain’s novel explores the obliterating drudgery and brutal sacrifice of maternal reality, and what can happen when women are not believed. She joins us for a ThinkIn which explores the dangerous myths of modern motherhood.
“Starkly original and compulsively readable, The Push is a deep dive into the darkest nooks and crannies of motherhood.” – Kristin Hannah, #1 New York Times bestselling author.
