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. Connie Ramos has been unjustly incarcerated in a mental institution with no hope of release. The authorities view her as a danger to herself and to others. Her family has given up on her. But Connie has a secret - a way to escape the confines of her cell. She can see the future. . . 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

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Genius...Marge Piercy is every bit as imaginative as H. G. Wells or Isaac Asimov or any of the great fantasists, but she is also a fierce and devoted activist who wants us to be more than passive readers...I urge you to read Marge Piercy now." * Gloria Steinem *
"Marge Piercy's characters are complex and very human" * Margaret Atwood *
"Here is somebody with the guts to go into the deepest core of herself, her time, her history, and risk more than anybody else has so far, just out of a love for the truth and a need to tell it." * Thomas Pynchon *
"One of the most important novelists of our time" * Erica Jong *
"Marge Piercy is the political novelist of our time. More: she is the conscience" * Marilyn French *

“Woman on the Edge of Time”

I enjoyed this book so much, it is a sort of science fiction and although I dont usually like this format this book was something else and well worth reading. Highly enjoyable.
