RED CLOCKS

ELLE (UK) - - Elle Play - BY LENI ZUMAS

This dystopian novel imag­ines a not-soun­be­liev­able world where abor­tion is out­lawed, IVF is banned

and the Per­son­hood Amend­ment grants rights

to life, prop­erty and lib­erty for em­bryos. Its cen­tral ques­tion is ‘What

is a woman for?’ The story fol­lows five women

chal­leng­ing the sta­tus quo. Even though Zumas wrote the book be­fore Trump’s in­au­gu­ra­tion, its pub­li­ca­tion this year has meant it’s been hailed as one of the books of the mo­ment.
