Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Living in an altered past that never saw the end of the Great Depression, Jeannine, a librarian, is waiting to be married. Joanna lives in a different version of reality: she's a 1970s feminist trying to succeed in a man's world. Janet is from Whileaway, a utopian earth where only women exist. And Jael is a warrior with steel teeth and catlike retractable claws, from an earth with separate-and warring-female and male societies. When these four women meet, the results are startling, outrageous, and subversive.

Synopsis:

It's influenced William Gibson, been listed as one of the ten essential works of science fiction, and sold over 100,000 copies. But most important, Joanna Russ's The Female Man is a suspenseful, surprising, and darkly witty chronicle of what happens when Jeannine, Janet, Joanna, and Jael — four alternate selves from drastically different realities — meet.
