*Selected for 2022 previews by the Observer, the Guardian, the Daily Mail, & the Irish Times* 'Intriguingly strange' The Bookseller, Editor's Choice In a single moment, in every part of the world, every person with an Y chromosome vanishes: lovers, children, parents - even foetuses from the womb. Jane Pearson wakes on a mountainside the next morning to find her husband and son missing from their tent. Frantic and grieving, she sets out to find the one person she thinks can help - Evangelyne Moreau, the brilliant, charismatic leader of the Commensalist Party of America, whose heart she broke many years before. While Jane searches for those she has lost, a radically different society emerges, one that seems - at first - to be suddenly, blissfully safer than what came before. And then The Men appears online: uncanny video footage that shows the missing being herded through bizarre, otherworldly landscapes. Is it a hoax, or could The Men hold the key to bringing back those who were lost? And if so, what might be the cost? From the author of The Heavens, The Men is a gripping, beautiful, and disquieting novel of impossible sacrifices that asks: what might we be prepared to give up to create a better world?

Recensioner i media

A dazzling work of speculative fiction * Observer * Heart-breaking. The Men imagines a better world and what we might have to sacrifice to get there, and, at the same time, it's a brilliantly constructed sci-fi thriller, with a premise that hooks you in with a horrifying grip. I loved it * Bridget Collins * 'Almost supernaturally propulsive, sometimes very beautiful... there are strange things here I am unlikely to forget. Sandra Newman is a genius' * Sarah Perry, author of Melmouth * Superb. A novel of hypnotic power and breadth from one of the most supple, dynamic voices around. Newman's talents never fail to impress me * Irenosen Okojie, author of Butterfly Fish * Explosive... Dazzling and lyrical... Truly spectacular * Literary Review * A gripping, haunting novel that miraculously swerves both cheap misandry and the lazy pieties of contemporary rectitude * Spectator * Propulsive * i Paper * The Men really intrigues and disturbs... * Guardian * Compelling and enjoyable * Telegraph * Sandra Newman's fiction is characterised by audacious conceits, utopian thinking and apocalyptic fantasies * Observer * Newman hooks you in with her intriguing premise, asking unnerving questions about our present, and future * Stylist, Book List * A tale of white guilt, climate inaction and the gravitational pull of grief; of what - or who - we are willing to sacrifice to stay comfortable * TLS *
