Description

In Banshee, Samantha Baxter―wife, mother, poetry professor―learns she has breast cancer and then ruins her own life.

Tumbling through a catastrophic midlife crisis, she gives herself permission to partake in behaviors she's observed in her male colleagues, including having an affair with a student her daughter's age, ranting at board meetings, and telling her poetry students what she really thinks of their work.

Underneath biting, witty narration lurks a childish, confused, and unrealized adult woman hell-bent on destroying her relationships and professional life, all within the span of a few weeks.

Part comedy, part tragedy, Banshee dramatizes the emotions that lie behind our inhibitions―and the consequences of unleashing them.
