Description

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

Publisher Review

Marge Piercy is the political novelist of our time. More: she is the conscience * Marilyn French * One of the most important novelists of our time * Erica Jong * 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 * Marge Piercy's characters are complex and very human * Margaret Atwood * 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 *
