Cancer provokes an unsatisfied poetry professor to mutiny in the three weeks she has between diagnosis and surgery. Disaster ensues.

Samantha Baxter has a full, sane life—creative job, lovely family, and all the trappings of middle-age happiness. But when she gets a diagnosis that terrifies her, a lifetime of polite pleasing and putting others first ignites in her a surprising, pure rage. Maybe Sam will survive the surgery, and maybe not, but either way, she’ll spend the next three weeks burning her life down: sleeping with a student her daughter’s age, speaking every truth she’s ever swallowed, and refusing to apologize for her wildest, most essential self.

“Sexy and sad, dark and funny, ruthless and kind, this is Rachel DeWoskin’s ferociously feminist masterpiece. Every page of it glitters with rage and with love...It radiates with truth.” —CHERYL STRAYED, NYT-bestselling author of Wild, Tiny Beautiful Things, Brave Enough, and Torch

“A wicked, delicious ride towards an ambivalent redemption—angry, hilarious, all too true.” —ALLY SHEEDY, actress and author

Banshee is the kind of book every woman I know wishes she'd written. Fierce, necessary, honest, a burn-it-all-down scorched earth policy to the toxic masculinity of this Age of Terror.” —Emily Rapp-Black, author of Poster Child and The Still Point of the Turning World

“Raucous, white-hot, and page-turning brilliance...A singular and vital reading experience.” —Gina Frangello, author of A Life in Men
