Normal women

£16.99

New mother Dani has a lot going on. She’s just moved back to her hometown, where her father was once known as the Garbage King; she’s fed up of not being a manicure-sporting, perfectly coiffed Normal Woman; and most of all, she’s worried that her seemingly healthy husband, Clark, will drop dead, leaving her and her new baby Lotte destitute. And then Dani discovers The Temple. Ostensibly a yoga center, The Temple and its guardian, Renata, are committed to helping people reach their full potential. And if that sometimes requires sex work, so be it. Finally, Dani has found something she could be good at, even great at – meaningful work that will protect her and Lotte from poverty, and provide true economic independence from Clark. But just as she’s preparing to embrace this opportunity, Renata disappears, leaving Dani to step into another role entirely – detective.

Description

New mother Dani has a lot going on. She’s just moved back to her hometown, where her father was once known as the Garbage King; she’s fed up of not being a manicure-sporting, perfectly coiffed Normal Woman; and most of all, she’s worried that her seemingly healthy husband, Clark, will drop dead, leaving her and her new baby Lotte destitute. And then Dani discovers The Temple. Ostensibly a yoga center, The Temple and its guardian, Renata, are committed to helping people reach their full potential. And if that sometimes requires sex work, so be it. Finally, Dani has found something she could be good at, even great at – meaningful work that will protect her and Lotte from poverty, and provide true economic independence from Clark. But just as she’s preparing to embrace this opportunity, Renata disappears, leaving Dani to step into another role entirely – detective. Darkly comic, sharply witty and fiercely smart, Normal Women asks how our societies truly value female labour – and what independence really means.
