The Push

Ashley Audrain

The Push has been compared to Lionel Shriver’s We Need to Talk About Kevin. 

It follows Blythe, a woman desperate not to follow in the footsteps of her mother and grandmother, and her struggles with her new baby, Violet.

Exploring the themes of motherhood, nature versus nurture and mental illness, The Push is a terrifying, utterly compelling literary suspense novel.
