FEMALE MAN

JOANNA RUSS    Book Number: 88685    Product format: Paperback

In the Gollancz bright yellow SF Masterworks series, it is rare to find a female writer in this genre. This wonderfully inventive novel is an interplanetary exploration of Feminist inner space. A 'sophisticated, playful fantasy book, Joanna's world is recognisable, very much like our own. So is Jeannine's, except that in hers, the Second World War never happened, the Great Depression is still going on, and inequality is even more rampant. But Janet's world is rather different. On the planet Whileaway there is no problem of relations between the sexes because there is only one. Janet is unfettered, free to lead her life as she wants, as an able and competent being, as a female man. Four women are living in parallel worlds, each with a different gender landscape. As they begin to travel to each other's worlds, each woman's preoccupations on gender and what it means to be a woman are challenged. Acclaimed as one of the essential works of science fiction and an influence on William Gibson, this is a landmark book in the fields of science fiction and feminism. 209pp in paperback.
