A GOOD MORNING AMERICA BOOK CLUB PICK | An instant New York Times bestseller

"Taut, chilling….Audrain has a gift for capturing the seemingly small moments that speak volumes about relationships." -The New York Times Book Review

"Hooks you from the very first page and will have you racing to get to the end." -Good Morning America

A tense, page-turning psychological drama about the making and breaking of a family-and a woman whose experience of motherhood is nothing at all what she hoped for-and everything she feared

Blythe Connor is determined that she will be the warm, comforting mother-the kind that she herself never had-to her new baby Violet. But in the thick of motherhood's exhausting early days, Blythe becomes convinced that something is wrong with her daughter-she doesn't behave like most children do.

Or is it all in Blythe's head? Her husband, Fox, says she's imagining things. She's a new mother who can't trust her own instincts-but can we?

Then their son Sam is born-and with him, Blythe has the blissful connection she'd always imagined with her child. Even Violet seems to love her little brother. But when life as they know it is changed in an instant, the devastating fall-out forces Blythe to face the truth.

The Push is a tour de force you will read in a sitting, an utterly immersive novel that will challenge everything you think you know about motherhood, about what we owe our children, and what it feels like when women are not believed.

Story Locale: Unidentified city, North America
A "MOST ANTICIPATED" BOOK OF 2021 IN HARDCOVER-NOW IN PAPERBACK: The Push is a conversation starter, with national media attention, enormous bookseller support, and a robust marketing campaign for the hardcover. It hit the New York Times bestseller lists in hardcover, combined physical/electronic, and audio, and should become a huge Penguin bestseller as we sell this book to an even larger, mass audience.

A SHORT, COMPULSIVE, HEART-WRENCHING READ, PERFECT FOR BOOK CLUBS: This book is unputdownable, laser-sharp when it comes to the deep ambivalence women can feel about becoming mothers. It's the kind of book that women read in a white heat, and immediately want to discuss with everyone they know. The pandemic has amplified pressures on women, and the book couldn't be more timely.

BOUGHT IN A MAJOR AUCTION AROUND THE WORLD: We bought The Push and The Whispers (Pamela Dorman Books, 2023) in major overnight deals with Michael Joseph in the UK and Penguin Canada, and now sold in 32 territories.

TV RIGHTS OPTIONED BY HEYDAY PRODUCTIONS: Oscar-winning company founded by David Heyman, who produced the Harry Potter series as well as many more.
