    008 - The Power w/ Emily Trueman

    Episode EIGHT of This Is My Favourite Thing looks at the revolutionary ideas behind Naomi Alderman’s novel The Power, with Emily Trueman.

    "It's a piece of feminist science fiction - or speculative fiction, or fiction about a fictional thing rather than a real thing (curious concept). In the novel, very suddenly almost all the women in the world develop the power to electrocute people at will. Anything from a tiny tingle all the way to full electro-death. And then everything is different."
