Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. First book of the "Xenogenesis" trilogy. "Post-catastrophe novel in which the few remaining humans are rescued by aliens. The alien society is eutopian. Aliens restore Earth and slightly redesign humans, who deeply resent it. Humans seem apt to recreate the dystopia that had been our civilization." - Sargent, British and Utopian Literature, 1986-2009. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-197. Hartwell, 200 Significant SF Books by Women, 1984-2001. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#84969). N° de réf. du libraire 84969
In a world devastated by nuclear war with humanity on the edge of extinction, aliens finally make contact. They rescue those humans they can, keeping most survivors in suspended animation while the aliens begin the slow process of rehabilitating the planet. When Lilith Iyapo is "awakened," she finds that she has been chosen to revive her fellow humans in small groups by first preparing them to meet the utterly terrifying aliens, then training them to survive on the wilderness that the planet has become. But the aliens cannot help humanity without altering it forever.
Bonded to the aliens in ways no human has ever known, Lilith tries to fight them even as her own species comes to fear and loathe her. A stunning story of invasion and alien contact by one of science fiction's finest writers.
Synopsis: Lilith lyapo awoke from a centuries-long sleep to find herself aboard the vast spaceship of the Oankali. Creatures covered in writhing tentacles, the Oankali had saved every surviving human from a dying, ruined Earth. They healed the planet, cured cancer, increased strength, and were now ready to help Lilith lead her people back to Earth--but for a price.
