"[A] sparkling valentine to the Bard. A dream of a novel, perfect for a midsummer nights read."--OPRAH DAILY
"A dazzling wild ride of a novel--daring, fresh, entertaining, and magical." --GEORGE SAUNDERS
"Wild and exhilarating and so fresh it takes your breath away." --LAUREN GROFF
"Oh my lord what a fabulous novel--knocked me out!"--MARY KARR

Miranda Fitchs life is a waking nightmare. The accident that ended her burgeoning acting career left her with excruciating, chronic back pain, a failed marriage, and a deepening dependence on painkillers. And now shes on the verge of losing her job as a college theater director. Determined to put on Shakespeares Alls Well That Ends Well, the play that promised, and cost, her everything, she faces a mutinous cast hellbent on staging Macbeth instead. Miranda sees her chance at redemption slip through her fingers.

Thats when she meets three strange benefactors who have an eerie knowledge of Mirandas past and a tantalizing promise for her future: one where the show goes on, her rebellious students get whats coming to them, and the invisible, doubted pain thats kept her from the spotlight is made known.

With prose Margaret Atwood has described as "no punches pulled, no hilarities dodged...genius," Mona Awad has concocted her most potent, subversive novel yet. Alls Well is the story of a woman at her breaking point and a formidable, piercingly funny indictment of our collective refusal to witness and believe female pain.
