Huge congratulations to Lincoln alumna Naomi Alderman, whose novel The Power has won the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction.

Set in a world where women have the power to inflict electric shocks, the novel explores themes of power, violence and gender in what judges called “a brilliantly imagined dystopia”. The novel is coloured with urgency and resonance, and was described by judges as “a classic of the future".
