About the Author

Marge Piercy is the author of seventeen novels including the classic Woman on the Edge of Time; nineteen volumes of poetry; four non-fiction books as well as her critically acclaimed memoir. Born in Detroit, educated at the University of Michigan, and the recipient of four honorary doctorates, she has been a key player in many of the major progressive political battles of our time, including the anti-Vietnam war and the women's movement, and more recently an active participant in the resistance to the war in Iraq. Praised as one of the few American writers who are accomplished poets as well as novelists - Piercy is one of the country's bestselling poets - she is also the master of many genres: historical novels, science fiction (for which she won the Arthur C. Clarke Award for Best Science Fiction in the United Kingdom), novels of social comment and contemporary entertainments. She has taught, lectured, and performed her work at well over 400 universities around the world. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

One of our boldest writers...like Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale, He, She and It finds disturbing trends in contemporary culture. * Los Angeles Times Book Review * HE, SHE AND IT, a ground-breaking example of Jewish feminist fabulation, is a triumph * AMERICAN BOOK REVIEW * Piercy's vision of a post-greenhouse-effect, nuclear-blasted world interlaced with the Prague ghetto of 1600, and the efforts of certain people to stay human in both, is threaded with the questions: What is it to be human? ... What does `life' mean?... What are the limits of creativity? As always, Piercy writes with high intelligence, love for the world, ethical passion and innate feminism * Adrienne Rich * A triumph of the imagination. Rich, complex, impossible to put down. Every new novel by Marge Piercy is cause for celebration * Alice Hoffman * 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. * GLORIA STEINEM * --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
