In Banshee, Samantha Baxter―wife, mother, poetry professor―learns she has breast cancer and then ruins her own life. Tumbling through a catastrophic midlife crisis, she gives herself permission to partake in behaviors she’s observed in her male colleagues, including having an affair with a student her daughter’s age, ranting at board meetings, and telling her poetry students what she really thinks of their work. Underneath biting, witty narration lurks a childish, confused, and unrealized adult woman hell-bent on destroying her relationships and professional life, all within the span of a few weeks. Part comedy, part tragedy, Banshee dramatizes the emotions that lie behind our inhibitions―and the consequences of unleashing them.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

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, New York Times bestselling author
“A ravishing book. Sexy and sad, dark and funny, ruthless and kind, this is Rachel DeWoskin’s ferociously feminist masterpiece.” Cheryl Strayed, New York Times bestselling author
“A wicked, delicious ride toward an ambivalent redemption—angry, hilarious, all too true.” Ally Sheedy, actress and author of She Was Nice to Mice
“Raucous, white-hot, and page-turning brilliance…A singular and vital reading experience.” Gina Frangello, author of A Life in Men
