Coming November 2023! A new novel from Women’s Prize-winning author Naomi Alderman

The Future by Naomi Alderman will be out later this year from Jonathan Ball Publishers!

Fourth Estate have announced that the new novel from the Women’s Prize-winning author, titled The Future, is being released on 7 November 2023.

The Future will be the bestselling author’s fifth novel, her first since 2016’s The Power.

‘The Future is a novel which has almost been dictated to me by the roiling urgency of the world today—the opportunity and the despair, the great hopes and the terrible fears. I’ve always believed that the novel can “bring the news”. So that’s what I’m hoping to do: to sketch a way forward from where we are now. With explosions. And drone swarms. And a love story.’ – Naomi Alderman

Set in a dystopian near-future, The Future takes place in a world where a few tech billionaires are leading the world to destruction, while safeguarding their own survival with secret bunkers. When a handful of friends – the daughter of a cult leader, the concerned wife of a dangerous CEO and an internet-famous survivalist – hatch a plan to overthrow the billionaires’ supremacy, it could be the greatest heist ever undertaken … or it could mean the end of the world.

The Future is a white-knuckle tour de force and dazzling exploration of the world we have made and where we are going.
