(#4073) HE, SHE AND IT. Marge Piercy.

HE, SHE AND IT. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1991. Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. "Complex future dystopia run by corporations with an embattled Jewish eutopia as the central focus." - Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009. An "examination of human relationships in a cyberpunk-influenced vision of an America dominated by Japanese corporations, but the historical likenesses or jointures which structure the plot –- an android powered by an AI is likened to the medieval Golem -– seem essentially metaphorical, after the fashion of many books by mainstream writers of SF, especially in the closing pages, where the android sacrifices itself so a Jewish commune may live. The American edition nevertheless won a James Tiptree Jr Award for 1991, and the UK edition the Arthur C. Clarke Award for 1993." - Neal Tringham and John Clute, SFE (online). Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-851. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#4073).
