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... The classic feminist science fiction novel - reissued on its 40th anniversary with a new introduction by the author.

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 *
"Both absorbing and exciting" * New York Times Book Review *
"Intelligent, thoughtfully constructed...perhaps the most important novel in the Piercy canon" * Time Out *
"a fiercely brilliant writer. . . a novel which is chilling, provocative and...controversial" * Jane Howard *

“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.
