Captivating: Been feeling inundated by the flood of alpha male testosterone gushing from Washington lately?  Then you need to pick up a copy of, “The Power,” by Naomi Alderman (Little Brown, 2016).  A single sentence on the book jacket describes it perfectly: “A fierce new power has emerged----and only women have it.”  And that’s just the start.  But the ending will surprise you.  This gem of a book is a journey through an alternate universe that is vastly different from our own, yet somehow exactly the same.  This book is a Must Read!
