    INSTANT INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

    SHORTLISTED for the 2022 Rakuten Kobo Emerging Writer Prize

    FINALIST for 2022 Crime Writers of Canada Best First Crime Novel

    “Utterly addictive.” —Paula Hawkins, author of The Girl on the Train

    “Written with an unflinching eye and a stylistically sharp, tight economy The Push is a single-sitting read, as suspenseful as any thriller, as thoughtful as any literary novel, with an almost physical force behind each of its turns and revelations.” —Toronto Star

    A tense, pause-resisting psychological drama about the making and breaking of a family, told through the eyes of 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, supportive mother she never had to her new baby Violet.

    But in the thick of motherhood's exhausting early days, Blythe doesn't find the connection with her daughter she expected. She's convinced that something is wrong with Violet—the little girl is distant, rejects affection, and becomes increasingly disruptive at preschool.

    Or is it all in Blythe's head? Her husband, Fox, says she is imagining things. Fox doesn't see what Blythe sees; he sees a wife who is struggling to cope with the day-to-day challenges of being a mother. And the more Fox dismisses her fears, the more Blythe begins to question her own sanity... 

    Then their son Sam is born—and with him, Blythe has the natural maternal connection she'd always dreamed of. 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 about herself, her past, and her daughter. 

    The Push is a rare and extraordinary gift to listeners: a novel about the expectations of motherhood we're taught not to challenge and what really happens behind the closed doors of even the most perfect-looking families. It's impossible to put down and impossible to forget.

    “[A] stunning, compelling read. . . . Written with an unflinching eye and a stylistically sharp, tight economy The Push is a single-sitting read, as suspenseful as any thriller, as thoughtful as any literary novel, with an almost physical force behind each of its turns and revelations. By the end, the reader will feel wrung out in the way only the best of books leaves you. Audrain’s debut is a stunning, devastating novel and, frankly, one hell of a way to start a year of reading.” Toronto Star 

    “[A] taut, tense thriller . . . [and] chilling debut.” The New York Times

    “Audrain cleverly examines and exploits women’s near-universal anxiety that they won’t measure up to some internalized standard of maternal perfection dictated by society. . . But what makes it stand out from the rest is Audrain’s nuanced understanding of how women’s voices are discounted, how a thousand little slights can curdle a solid marriage and—in defiance of maternal taboos—how mothers really feel, sometimes, toward difficult children. . . . The Push [is] more than a novel of suspense, the sum of its parts speaking to the burdens we all carry, whether we are mothers or simply children of women who did the best they could, however far their best efforts may have fallen short.” Los Angeles Times

    Challenging but necessary

    What a story! I've been seeking novels about difficult motherhood & this addressed that as well as a myriad of connected issues. I'm reeling.
    Ashley Audrain addresses motherhood sans the saintly expectations the world forces on the relationship between all mothers & their children. She made me wonder about the mothers of famous sociopaths & psychopaths. Did they see it coming? Was it generational trauma or just bad seed? Will we ever know?
    Trigger warning if you've had an neglectful parent.

    Infuriating abrupt end

    I listened to the first hour of this book and could not get interested in it so I returned it. I had forgotten the title so I accidently purchased it again a few months later. Again the beginning was an unusual start to a book, but I was busy doing something else while listening so I got past that part. The writer breaks the conventional rules of writing and if you like this kind of "artsy" approach then this may appeal to you; thus the great reviews from the critics. I thought the themes she explored came off as very realistic and in this way it was brilliant. However at the end of the day, I could not give the book 5 stars as the way she structured it did not feel right for the story. In my opinion she took her artistic choices too far! This story has a beginning middle and not really much of an end. It spend to much time leaving the reader in the dark and not giving you the information you need to really enjoy the story. The beginning is slow and offers no context! Once past the first hour it becomes more interesting. You spend the rest of the time trying to figure out if the main characters has mental health issue or if she is being made to feel crazy. The story takes you back and forth and in that sense it is brilliant. Here is where the rub comes for me, I like my stories to wrap up at the end. This one wraps up nothing and the end is about 15 minutes long!
