A hatalom


A nők a világ minden táján felfedezik, hogy különös erővel rendelkeznek. Ujjuk egyetlen érintésével képesek szörnyű fájdalmat okozni, sőt: gyilkolni is. A férfiak pedig rájönnek, hogy kicsúszott a kezükből az irányítás… Elérkezett a Lányok Napja, de vajon hogyan fog véget érni? A hatalom az elmúlt évek legnagyobb könyvsikereinek egyike, megjelenése óta megtalálható a legfontosabb sikerlistákon, 15 héten át szerepelt a New York Times mérvadó listáján. Már több, mit két tucat nyelvre lefordították, rendkívüli aktualitásával, melyben egy új, nők irányította jövőt vizionál, jelentős visszhangot váltott ki az irodalmi életben, a közéletben, a sajtóban és a politikában. Sorra kapja a fontos elismeréseket, a New York Times az év tíz legjobb könyve közé választotta, ahogyan Barack Obama is ajánlotta, mint az év egyik legfontosabb könyvét.

Napětí


Všechno začíná jiskrou dospívající dívky mezi 14 a 15 lety v sobě objevují schopnost vytvářet v těle elektrickou energii a výboji z prstů si vynucovat poslušnost, v horším případě i mučit nebo zabíjet. Chlapci jsou kvůli bezpečnosti izolováni v chlapeckých školách. V některých částech světa propukají krvavé revoluce. Dívky se v používání elektrického napětí zdokonalují a probouzejí tuto schopnost i ve starších ženách. Jak by svět vypadal, kdyby se moc přesunula z rukou mužů do rukou žen? Kdyby po celém světě zavládl matriarchát a přestaly platit klasické genderové stereotypy? Odpovědi na tyto otázky dává Naomi Aldermanová ve svém posledním románu Napětí, mnohoznačném a barvitě psaném textu na pomezí sci-fi, dystopie a thrilleru, v němž je výchozí situace promyšlena do důsledků: ženy zneužívají své sexuality, muži se stávají oběťmi a radikálně se mění celkové paradigma a fungování společnosti. Napětí je Příběh služebnice pro naši éru. Ron Charles, The Washington Post

Engedetlenség


Ronit Krushka harminckét éves, New Yorkban él, és leszbikus létére főnökével, egy nős férfival folytat viszonyt. Apja halála után visszatér szülővárosába, Londonba. Ortodox zsidó családból származik, de nem gyakorolja a vallást, és rég elhidegült apjától is, aki befolyásos rabbi volt. Hazatérése nem mentes a konfliktusoktól: a hagyománytisztelő közösségben, ahol felnőtt, már Ronit puszta lénye is hajmeresztő provokáció. De a sokkhatás kölcsönös. Ronit viszontlátja unokatestvérét, Dovidot, akiből rabbi lett, ráadásul Ronit régi szerelmét vette feleségül. Ronit nem tér magához: unokatestvére és régi szerelme is egész más, mint annak idején. Ronitot friss tapasztalatai arra kényszerítik, hogy mindent átértékeljen, amit az életről gondolt. Naomi Alderman 1974-ben született Londonban. Rendszeresen ír a Guardianbe, a Bath-i egyetem oktatója. Az Engedetlenség az első regénye - az ebből készült amerikai filmet Magyarországon A rabbi meg a lánya címmel vetítették, két főszereplője Rachel Weisz és Rachel McAdams. A hatalom című disztópiájával2016-ban robbant be a világ könyvpiacaira: több tucat nyelvre lefordították, díjak sokaságát söpörte be, regénye egyszeriben a feminista mozgalmak megkerülhetetlen hivatkozási pontjává vált.

Disobedience


For Ronit Krushka, thirty-two and single and living on Manhattan's Upper West Side, Orthodox Judaism is a suffocating culture she fled long ago. But when she learns of the death of her estranged father, the pre-eminent rabbi of the London Orthodox Jewish community in which she was raised, she leaves behind her Friday-night takeout, her troublesome romance, and her boisterous circle of friends to return home. Her dual mission there is to mourn her father and to collect a single heirloom of her mother's. But as she reconnects with old acquaintances and the traditional ebb and flow of the community, Ronit becomes more than a stranger in her old home--she becomes a threat.Set at the crossroads of tradition and modernity, Disobedience explores a devout and closed world to discover the importance of moving on and what we lose when we do.

Sila


Ženy na celom svete zisťujú, že majú silu. Stačí roztvoriť dlaň, pohnúť prstom a dokážu spôsobiť ukrutnú bolesť či dokonca smrť. Prišiel Deň dievčat, ale ako a kde sa skončí? Sila je feministickou sci-fi, ktorú denník Guardian vybral za knihu roka 2017. Dievča v americkom zapadákove utečie od nevlastného otca, ktorý ho zneužíva. Mladík v Nigérii natočí video, ako sa dievča v supermarkete obráni pred útočníkom. Dcéra mafiána z východného Londýna je svedkyňou popravy svojej matky. Senátorka v Novom Anglicku sa pokúša chrániť svoju dcéru. Allie, Tunde, Roxy a Margot trpia nerovnosťou, ktorá sa udržiavala vo svete počas celých storočí. Využijú pohnuté časy, aby zaviedli nový poriadok. Iskra revolúcie preskakuje z jednej krajiny do druhej, nová sila, výnimočná a ničivá, ktorú v sebe objavili dievčatá a mladé ženy, navždy zmení svet. Recenzie, kritiky Naomi Alderman odvážne opisuje najextrémnejšie následky hnutia, ktoré túži po moci namiesto toho, aby ju podrývalo ak sa z feminizmu stane prostriedok na ovládnutie iných, ženské hnutie stratilo svoj cieľ. Bridget Read, Vogue Jedna z najlepších kníh, aké som čítal v roku 2017. Barack Obama V románe Sila sa pred nami otvára fascinujúci svet, v ktorom sa tisícročie sexizmu obracia úplne naruby. Times Drzé sci-fi, inteligentné a drsné, presné a hektické... Naomi Alderman dokonale predstavuje svoju myšlienku. Nový svetový poriadok nakoniec reflektuje ten, ktorý porazil... Observer Nahradiac protokoly jedného rodu druhým, Naomi Alderman vytvorila vzrušujúci príbeh plný provokácií a myšlienkových experimentov. Financial Times Znie to šialene: dospievajúce dievčatá na celom svete zrazu zistia, že majú záhadnú silu, na končekoch prstov im iskrí elektrina a nebezpečne bzučí. Len si predstavte potenciál na pomstu a odplatu... Román Sila je napísaný pod vysokým napätím a čitateľstvo núti k tomu, aby sa zamyslelo nad úplne všetkým. Psychologies Odvážny a nezvyčajný román, ktorý určite vyvolá pozornosť a prinúti zamyslieť sa mimo bežných schém. Sunday Times Vo svete tohto románu v románe je všetko naopak: tie ženy, ktoré nemôžu šoférovať, podpaľujú autá; obete obchodu s bielym mäsom sa oslobodzujú a zo Všemohúceho sa stáva Všemohúca. Tak ako najlepšie sci-fi aj táto feministická dystópia odzrkadľuje našu súčasnosť. Mail on Sunday 5 hodín čítania
