Product description

Review

The Push was a poetic, propulsive read that set my nerves jangling in both horror and recognition. I read it one sitting and it stayed with me for days afterwards. Not to be missed -- Lisa Jewell

I was totally hooked. Compelling, addictive, chilling. Smashing read -- Elizabeth Macneal

With its
riveting prose and deep convictions, Ashley Audrain's The Push had me in its clutches from the first page. Audrain's astute portrayal of motherhood was unsettling in its insights, yet highly entertaining on the page. Complex, nuanced, and unflinching, I inhaled this debut in one sitting, bestselling author of Recipe for a Perfect Wife

Starkly original and compulsively readable, The Push is a deep dive into the darkest nooks and crannies of motherhood . . . Raw, visceral, and often disturbing, this is an intense psychological drama -- Kristin Hannah

The most thought-provoking exploration of motherhood I've come across since We Need to Talk About Kevin -- Clare Pooley

Intensely absorbing, gripping until the final page, The Push excavates the myths of motherhood, deftly exploring the shape-shifting landscape of parenting, the powerful impact of the past on the present, and the deep unease of our inability to ever fully know even those we hold the closest -- Kim Edwards, bestselling author of The Memory Keeper's Daughter

Stayed up too late finishing [Audrain's] deeply unsettling The Push about the darkest reaches of motherhood . . . Visceral, provocative, compulsive, and with the most graphic and relatable description of childbirth I've read (or written) -- Sarah Vaughan, bestselling author of Anatomy of a Scandal

The Push is written on the edge of a knife. It's a howl in the face of what we think we know - or want to believe - about motherhood. Relentlessly compelling, distressing and beautiful, Ashley Audrain's debut is the next Gone Girl, with shades of We Need to Talk About Kevin. I devoured it whole -- Marissa Stapley, bestselling author of The Last Resort

Compelling, beautifully written and wickedly entertaining... A tremendously thought-provoking read -- Liz Nugent, author of Little Cruelties and Lying in Wait --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Welcome to my Amazon Author page! My debut novel, THE PUSH, is a story about one woman's journey through motherhood that turns out to be nothing like what she hoped for—in fact, it's everything she always feared. It's a novel that explores the expectations of motherhood, the debate about nature vs. nurture, and the repercussions of silencing women's truths—all told with page-turning, emotional suspense.

THE PUSH was a New York Times, Sunday Times, and Globe & Mail bestseller, a Good Morning America book club pick, and rights have been sold in 40 territories. A limited television series is in the works with David Heyman's Heyday Television. To say the publication of this novel has made my dreams come true is an understatement. I'm pinching myself daily! Thank you to everyone who has read THE PUSH, and to those have taken the time to share their reviews here online. I really appreciate it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I’ve read in 2021!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 April 2021
This is the best book I’ve read this year! Ashley Audrain is a brilliant writer and takes on the relationship between a mother and daughter with intensity. I read the book in one sitting as it was gripping to the extent that I had to keep reading. The story revolves around Blythe who has a baby (Violet) through the persistence of her husband. As soon as Violet is born, Blythe struggles to make a connection with the newborn. Everyone dismisses her feelings as something that new mothers go through but as the years go by, Blythe realises that Violet is not all what she seems. The dark side of the narrative begins to creep in as Violet grows older with an unthinkable consequence. This is a dark psychological novel and could be upsetting for some! Overall I would highly recommend this book! Impatiently waiting for Audrain’s next one “The Whispers”
