Often compared to Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale and Naomi Alderman’s The Power – Woman on the Edge of Time has been hailed as a classic of speculative science fiction. Disturbing and forward thinking, Marge Piercy’s remarkable novel will speak to a new generation of readers.
After being unjustly committed to a mental institution, Connie Ramos is contacted by an envoy from the year 2137, who shows her a utopian future of sexual and racial equality and environmental harmony.
But Connie also bears witness to another potential outcome- a dystopian society of grotesque exploitation. One will become our world. And Connie herself may strike the decisive blow…
For fans of THE HANDMAID’S TALE, this is a reissue of a much loved feminist classic.
‘She is a serious writer who deserves the sort of considered attention which, too often, she does not get…’ MARGARET ATWOOD
