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.
