Native Tongue (Kobo eBook)

Native Tongue By Suzette Haden Elgin Cover Image
Available Now


  • Native Tongue is one of our most recognizable backlist titles, and has been selling well despite the fact that it has been digital-print-only for some time now. It is frequently course adopted, and we are frequently asked by booksellers and professors when it will be more widely available.
  • Film adaptation rights for the trilogy have recently been sold.
  • UK rights for the trilogy have also been sold, and there will be a simultaneous UK publication of the books.
  • Often compared to The Handmaid's Tale, the Native Tongue trilogy is another dystopian narrative based on the idea of increased gender-based discrimination. With the success of the former's television show and the continuing battle over women's health and other gender issues in the US, the Native Tongue trilogy definitely remains relevant today.
  • These titles will be tied in with publicity connected to the Feminist Press's 50th anniversary in 2020, including fundraising campaigns and events. The reissue of the Native Tongue trilogy will begin a multi-year campaign to reissue several Feminist Press backlist classics and bring them to a wider audience.
  • Will include new front/back matter by a contemporary, feminist science fiction author. Each book in the series will feature new content of this kind, each by a different author.
