World-famous anthropologist Gray Kaiser has almost everything. She is brilliance, self-sufficient, and beautiful. But at 59, one thing is still missing from her life. She has never been in love. Her assistant Errol McEchern has loved her for many years, but she doesn't know.

Errol convinces Gray to return to the site of her first triumph - Kenya, where she had discovered an isolated tribe of Masai who worshipped American World War II deserter Charles Corgi as a god. While there, they meet Raphael Sarasola, a 24-year-old graduate assistant whose dark good looks and insolent manner make him a double for the dead Corgi. And as Errol watches, amazed and injured, Gray falls in love.

From its exotic beginning to its chilling end, The Female of the Species is a hypnotic, beautifully written novel. Through Errol, Raphael, and Gray, Lionel Shriver explores love in all its desperation. Download and start listening now!

    " She's SUCH a good writer. Read it in two days, sitting on a sunny dock, looking out at a beautiful lake. Pretty perfect :) "

    " This book started out so well, I don't know what happened. I would recommend reading just the first 100 pages of this one (odd right?) "

    " Found this my least favourite Lionel Shriver book to date. Awkward and clunky, I found the characters very difficult to connect with and the plot pretty tedious. "
