I am woman. Hear me roar.

A story for every woman: original, honest and thought-provoking, ROAR is Cecelia Ahern’s unforgettable story collection.

With her trademark honesty, Cecelia Ahern gives us 30 stories about 30 women, all titled ‘The Woman Who…’, that capture the different facets of women’s lives.

Humorous, moving, surreal and poignant, the stories capture the moments the characters are overwhelmed by guilt, confusion, frustration, intimidation, exhaustion — private moments when they feel the need to roar. 

From The Woman Who Slowly Disappeared to The Woman Who Returned and Exchanged Her Husband, discover an extraordinary collection that will resonate with women everywhere.

Each story showcases the originality of Ahern’s talent and the versatility of her voice.
