Margaret Atwood’s protégée Naomi Alderman has taken the UK by storm with her book "The Power." This feminist dystopian novel, featuring a central character Roxy, the daughter of a Jewish gangster, asks the question, what would happen if women suddenly possessed a fierce new power? Winner of the 2017 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction, "The Power" has been met with rave reviews. The television rights have been bought by Sister Pics, and the book is the perfect accompaniment to this fall's acclaimed adaptation of "The Handmaid's Tale" (based on Atwood's novel). 

Alderman's "Disobediance," about an Orthodox lesbian, won the 2006 Orange Award for new writers. Her novel "The Liar's Gospel" (2013) is about the Jewish character Yehoshuah, who wandered Roman-occupied Judea giving sermons and healing the sick.
