My latest books

Check out my latests books above or take a look at this site to know more about all the things I do.

The Liars’ Gospel

A novel in four ‘alternate gospels’ by Mary, Judas, Caiaphas the High Priest and Barabbas the freedom fighter. The question is: maybe Jesus rose from the dead. But if he didn’t then… what happened?

The Power

Chosen as book of the year by Barack Obama, Bill Gates, the New York Times and the Washington Post, it’s about what happens when almost all the women in the world suddenly develop the power to electrocute people at will.


Won the Orange New Writers Award and other prizes, it’s about the Orthodox Jewish community I grew up in, and two women there who fall in love and how that goes for them, and for the community.

The Lessons

A novel about Oxford, about the strange culture of “effortless superiority” that means it’s better to fail than to be seen to try. I wish I’d predicted Boris Johnson in this novel, but I feel he lurks somewhere in the spirit of ‘blagging it’ that this book is about.

The Future

Released 7th November 2023
The bestselling, award-winning author of The Power delivers a dazzling tour de force where a handful of friends plot a daring heist to save the world from the tech giants whose greed threatens life as we know it.

Are you wondering if that Naomi Alderman who wrote The Power could possibly be the same person who co-created and writes Zombies, Run!?





This is where I like to write and muse on things I find interesting or projects that I have going on in my life right now.
