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.
