About Naomi Alderman's latest offering, Margaret Atwood says, "Electrifying! Shocking! Will knock your socks off! Then you'll think twice, about everything." A recommendation from Atwood (and one with exclamation points, at that) is good enough for us. Plus, Tyler says it's awesome and it will probably be his staff pick, as well. AND the editors over at the gray lady just picked it as one of their top 10 of 2017 as well, so. The premise: women develop the power to literally shock, a la electric eels, and because of this new strength, become dominant in society.
