Woman on the Edge of Time

£3.99

Product description

Connie Ramos, 37, Mexican-American, unfairly incarcerated in a mental hospital, is the enduring and endearing central character in this classic of utopian 'speculative' science fiction as well as feminist literature. Marge Piercy carefully crafts an entire utopian society, as her heroine goes from being labelled inadequate and getting recommitted to a mental institution against her will, to becoming the individual whose actions and decisions will determine the course of history.
Intelligent, thoughtfully constructed, a modern classic from a master of the craft, Woman on the Edge of Time is as important now as it was when it was written 40 years ago.
Signs of age on spine and a clear crease running parallel to the spine on the front cover, otherwise in good condition.
