Plot summary[ edit ] In the s, an impoverished but intelligent thirty-seven-year-old Mexican-American woman Consuelo Connie Ramos, a resident of Spanish Harlemis unfairly incarcerated in a New York mental hospital due to her supposed violent criminal tendencies. She lives in Nantucket. There she marries the millionaire Gray, who provides her a rich family life. He is drawn back into the tale when police interrogate him after Sophie has been found murdered with an inscribed book from him in her room, along with volumes by Baudelaire and Rimbaud. Before beginning the novel, I read all the utopian fiction I could lay my hands on, partly to study the narrative strategies that had worked and those that were too static to compel a contemporary reader.

There are some interesting ideas on parenting children are born in artificial wombs and have three parents, and men can be modified to sucklecoming of age rituals, etc. In contrast to the contemporary s setting in an abusive mental institution where patients are labelled "violent," "incapable," "irrational," etc. Despite the fact that he has throughout his life compulsively sought out aristocratic society, none of his titled friends come to see him, which makes him alternately morose and irate. With so many provoking ideas and a compelling narrative, Woman on the Edge of Time is a great novel — certainly the best work of science fiction I have read in years. Instead she laces her doctor's coffee before he drinks it.

Connie retains her visions and her connection, which become more and more real, even while heavily drugged in the mental hospital in New York, based loosely on Bellevue and other mental institutions of that period. Lencioni has some impressive experience to draw from. Something bad happens in the future whenever the future worries about its past. How does that society deal with loneliness and alienation? She marries a man she loves but loses him when he is killed in a knife fight on the street. Plot[ edit ] Maugham begins by characterizing his story as not really a novel but a thinly veiled true account.

Woman on the Edge of Time is both a searing indictment of some of the fundamental assumptions of our society and an intriguing portrayal of a "utopian" alternative.

In particular, it is slowly revealed that Luciente's utopia is only one possible future; alternate futures are a possibility, and the novel shows us one example— a future consumerist, hyper-capitalist, environmentally sick and strictly classist, racist, and gender-stratified society in which a wealthy elite live on space platforms, sustaining themselves by dominating and exploiting the majority of the population through total control of knowledge and technology, personal control extending to physical "farming" of bodies harvesting organs regularly and the surgical control of moods through the use of psychotropic drug s.
