ORYX AND CRAKE. [Toronto, Ontario, Canada: McClelland & Stewart, 2003.]. Octavo, boards. First edition. The first book of Atwood’s remarkable Maddaddam trilogy takes place in a climate change-induced bio-wasteland where humans are not quite humans anymore. "Dystopia. Most of the novel is set in a post-catastrophe future, but some is set in the dystopia of our day and a near future dystopia of corporate competition over genetic manipulation, which leads to the catastrophe." - Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009. Touch of sunning at edges of boards, a nearly fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#158829).
