University Book Club -- Marge Piercy's Woman on the Edge of Time

University Book Club Selection -- Read for January.
Marge Piercy’s, Woman at the Edge of Time
With a power and truth that rock us — and through the medium of a woman who becomes vitally alive, important, and dear to us — Marge Piercy moves between a revelation of our present society and a startling twin projection of the possible future.
WOMAN ON THE EDGE OF TIME is at once a heightening of the novel of realism and a brilliant prophetic fable. It is Marge Piercy's triumph to take us so wholly into the very being of a stranger that we come to perceive her fate as inseparable from our own.
