The Men by Sandra Newman

The dazzling new novel from the acclaimed author of The Heavens asks: what if the price of a better world was losing the person you love?


In a single moment, in every part of the world, every person with a Y chromosome vanishes: lovers, children, parents – even foetuses from the womb.

Jane Pearson wakes on a mountainside the next morning to find her husband and son missing from their tent.  Frantic and grieving, she sets out to find the one person she thinks can help – Evangelyne Moreau, the brilliant, charismatic leader of the Commensalist Party of America, whose heart she broke many years before.

While Jane searches for those she has lost, a radically different society emerges, one that seems – at first – to be suddenly, blissfully safer than what came before.  And then The Men appears online: uncanny video footage that shows the missing being herded through bizarre, otherworldly landscapes.  Is it a hoax, or could The Men hold the key to bringing back those who were lost?  And if so, what might be the cost?

The Men is a gripping, beautiful, and disquieting novel of impossible sacrifices.

Peer & Press Reviews

Heart-breaking.  The Men imagines a better world and what we might have to sacrifice to get there, and, at the same time, it’s a brilliantly constructed sci-fi thriller, with a premise that hooks you in with a horrifying grip.  I loved it.

Bridget Collins, author of The Betrayals

Almost supernaturally propulsive, sometimes very beautiful… there are strange things here I am unlikely to forget.  Sandra Newman is a genius.

Sarah Perry, author of Melmouth

Superb.  A novel of hypnotic power and breadth from one of the most supple, dynamic voices around.  Newman's talents never fail to impress me.

Irenosen Okojie, author of Butterfly Fish
