ABOUT ROAR

In this singular and imaginative story collection, Cecelia Ahern illuminates the myriad ways in which women overcome adversity with wit, resourcefulness and compassion.  Exploring dilemmas and aspirations that women everywhere will relate to, these unforgettable tales blend magical realism and familiar scenarios with startling and often hilarious results.  In matters ranging from marriage and childrearing to politics and career, the heroines of these thought-provoking stories confront problems both mysterious and mundane: one woman is tortured by sinister bite marks that appear on her skin; another is swallowed up by the floor during a mortifying presentation; yet another resolves to return and exchange her boring husband at the store where she originally acquired him. As they wrestle with obstacles of all kinds, their reality is shaped by how others perceive them -- and ultimately, how they perceive the power within themselves.                                     

By turns sly, whimsical and affecting, these 30 short stories are an inspiring examination of what it means to be a woman today.

"These provocative and witty stories prove it’s time to recognise Cecelia Ahern as one of our finest writers" John Boyne, author of A Ladder To The Sky and The Boy In The Stripped Pyjamas

"These stories sing from the page … sharp, clever, witty: a joy to read" Donal Ryan, author of The Spinning Heart
