Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. "Complex future dystopia run by corporations with an embattled Jewish eutopia as the central focus." - Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009. An "examination of human relationships in a cyberpunk-influenced vision of an America dominated by Japanese corporations, but the historical likenesses or jointures which structure the plot -- an android powered by an AI is likened to the medieval Golem -- seem essentially metaphorical, after the fashion of many books by mainstream writers of SF, especially in the closing pages, where the android sacrifices itself so a Jewish commune may live. The American edition nevertheless won a James Tiptree Jr Award for 1991, and the UK edition the Arthur C. Clarke Award for 1993." - Neal Tringham and John Clute, SFE (online). Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-851. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#4073). N° de réf. du libraire 4073
Synopsis : "A triumph of the imagination. Rich, complex, impossible to put down."
In the middle of the twenty-first century, life as we know it has changed for all time. Shira Shipman's marriage has broken up, and her young son has been taken from her by the corporation that runs her zone, so she has returned to Tikva, the Jewish free town where she grew up. There, she is welcomed by Malkah, the brilliant grandmother who raised her, and meets an extraordinary man who is not a man at all, but a unique cyborg implanted with intelligence, emotions--and the ability to kill....
From the imagination of Marge Piercy comes yet another stunning novel of morality and courage, a bold adventure of women, men, and the world of tomorrow.
