Waterstones Says

Boasting a spectacular array of literary talent including Margaret Atwood, Kamila Shamsie and Ali Smith, Furies reclaims traditional terms of misogynist abuse and transforms them into a collection of intensely powerful stories for our time.

DRAGON. TIGRESS. SHE-DEVIL. HUSSY. SIREN. WENCH. HARRIDAN. MUCKRAKER. SPITFIRE. VITUPERATOR. CHURAIL. TERMAGANT. FURY. WARRIOR. VIRAGO.

For centuries past, and all across the world there are words that have defined and decried us. Words that raise our hackles fire up our blood; words that tell a story.

In this blazing cauldron of a book, fifteen bestselling, award-winning writers have taken up their pens and reclaimed these words, creating an entertaining and irresistible collection of feminist tales for our time.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This anthology is all killer, no filler - Red Magazine

A slick collection of clever tales, with something for bluestockings and banshees alike - Observer

Some are historical, some are infused with the mystical and magical, some have threads of fierce commentary and some are laugh-out-loud funny. All of them fizz with energy, meaning and page-turner plots - The Scotsman

Delightful and thought-provoking - Perspective

Spell-binding . . . these vivid works of imagination are further proof that, back in 1973, Virago's founder Carmen Calil was on to something - Kiran Duggal, Harper's Bazaar

A collection of dazzling stories, as inventive as they are inspiring - Daily Mirror

A collection of wild works by wild women is the perfect tribute to Virago's impact and legacy - Tortoise Media

Some stories are historical, some are infused with the mystical and magical, some have threads of fierce commentary and some are laugh-out-loud funny. All of them fizz with energy, meaning and page-turner plots - The Press and Journal

Definitely where power and feminist rage meet - Stylist

[Furies addresses] the full panoply of 'isms' such as racism, ageism, heroism, terrorism, and classism, all congregated under feminism - Irish Examiner
