We are beyond thrilled that The Whispers (Penguin / Pamela Dorman Books / Viking), the propulsive and searingly powerful novel by Ashley Audrain, is an instant #1 National Bestseller in Canada! The Whispers shot straight up the charts, landing at #1 in Canadian Fiction and Overall Paperback Fiction on the Globe and Mail list.

The Whispers follows the story of four suburban families whose lives are irrevocably changed when a terrible accident occurs. Told from multiple perspectives, Audrain’s novel masterfully explores the dark side of motherhood, the intuitions we silence, the complexity of close friendships, and the power of desire, jealousy and revenge.

The Whispers was selected as Apple Canada’s Thriller of the Month for June 2023, a June Library Reads Pick and it has already featured in The New York TimesThe Globe & Mail’s ‘Thirty nine fiction and non-fiction books to read this spring’ and ELLE Canada.

We couldn’t be more proud, and we can’t wait to see The Whispers continue to take the world by storm! Huge congratulations, Ashley! If you haven’t done so already, you can get your copy here.
