Woman (UK) - - Books & Puzzles -

by Christina Dalcher, Hard­back, HQ Harper­collins, £12.99, out 23 au­gust

Set in a dystopian fu­ture that is fright­en­ingly re­lat­able, this en­gross­ing read tells of an amer­ica where women are lim­ited to 100 words per day and get an elec­tric shock if they talk too much. This ap­palling re­al­ity is still sink­ing in for for­mer cog­ni­tive lin­guist Jean when a drink-fu­elled rant is fol­lowed by a sur­prise visit and an op­por­tu­nity. Heart wrench­ing and skil­fully crafted.
