Praise

“Starkly original and compulsively readable, Ashley Audrain’s 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 that will be embraced by serious book clubs and fans of Lionel Shriver’s We Need to Talk about Kevin.”
– Kristin Hannah, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“THE PUSH was a poetic, propulsive read that set my nerves jangling in both horror and recognition. I read it in one sitting and it stayed with me for days afterwards. Not to be missed.”
– Lisa Jewell, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Then She Was Gone

“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.” 
– Karma Brown, bestselling author of Recipe for a Perfect Wife

“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, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Memory Keeper’s Daughter

“Ashely Audrain’s The Push is not only a propulsively entertaining, read-in-one-sitting novel, it is also a deeply provocative and fearless look at motherhood written in some of the prettiest prose you’ll read all year.” 
–Aimee Molloy, New York Times bestselling author of The Perfect Mother

“Written with  a courage that borders on audacity, and with uncanny emotional and psychological precision,  Ashley Audrain’s The Push is a taut, tour-de-force literary thriller that draws you in from the very first pages and plunges you into the most harrowing of journeys:  parenthood.”
–Bill Clegg, New York Times bestselling author of Did You Ever Have A Family?

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

“Stayed up too late finishing [Audrain’s] deeply unsettling The Push about the darkest reaches of motherhood (and profound maternal ambivalence). 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

“Compelling, beautifully written and wickedly entertaining…. A tremendously thought-provoking read.”
— Liz Nugent, author of Little Cruelties and Lying in Wait
