Hvad, hvis kvinder havde magten? Pludselig – i morgen eller dagen efter – opdager alle verdens teenagepiger, at de har fået ‘kraften’; evnen til at give dødeligt stærke elektriske stød. Bogen følger tre kvinder og en mand gennem 10 år, mens kraften langsomt ændrer på magtbalancen mellem kønnene, og en verdensomspændende revolution tager sin begyndelse. Det begynder i det små. I USA indser en kvindelig borgmester, at den fysisk overlegne kvinde kan komme langt i politik. Datteren af en britisk mafiaboss tager en hævnaktion i egne hænder, og en sydstatspige får endelig mulighed for at flygte fra misbruget i sin plejefamilie. Andre steder er omvæltningen mere dramatisk. I Moldova tager tidligere sexslaver kampen op mod den systematiserede menneskehandel, og i Indien og Saudi-Arabien gør kvinderne oprør mod århundreders undertrykkelse. En ung nigeriansk journalist dokumenterer det hele – også, da mændene svarer igen. Kraften er et portræt af fire liv og et verdenssamfund i radikal forandring. Det er en provokerende, tankevækkende og overraskende morsom roman, der både beskriver en alternativ virkelighed og afslører vores egen verdens skyggesider. Naomi Alderman skriver romaner og noveller. Hun er vokset op i London og har læst på Oxford University og University of East Anglia. Hun laver bl.a. udsendelser for BBC Radio 4 og skriver for The Guardian. Kraften er hendes fjerde roman og den første oversat til dansk. Hun har vundet flere priser for sine bøger, bl.a. Bailey’s Prize for Women’s Fiction 2017 og Women’s Prize for Fiction 2018, begge for Kraften.

From the author of The Power, winner of the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction 2017'A visceral retelling of the events surrounding the life of Jesus' Hilary Mantel, Guardian, Books of the Year'He was a traitor, a rabble-leader, a rebel, a liar and a pretender to the throne. We have tried to forget him here.'Now, a year after Yehoshuah's death, four people tell their stories. His mother flashes between grief and rage while trouble brews between her village and the occupying soldiers. Iehuda, who was once Yehoshuah's friend, recalls how he came to lose his faith and find a place among the Romans. Caiaphas, the High Priest at the great Temple in Jerusalem, tries to hold the peace between Rome and Judea. Bar-Avo, a rebel, strives to bring that peace tumbling down. Viscerally powerful in its depictions of the realities of the period: massacres and riots, animal sacrifice and human betrayal, The Liars' Gospel finds echoes of the present in the past. It was a time of political power-play and brutal tyranny and occupation. Young men and women took to the streets to protest. Dictators put them down with iron force. Rumours spread from mouth to mouth. Rebels attacked the greatest Empire the world has ever known. The Empire gathered its forces to make those rebels pay. And in the midst of all of that, one inconsequential preacher died. And either something miraculous happened, or someone lied.
