One of the few serious role-reversal utopias we have. I read it in one sitting. --Joanna Russ, author of The Female Man In a world ruled by women, men live alone and rear boys in a cheerful atmosphere of sports, physical labor, and healthy sexuality, but without the consciousness of anxiety of knowledge of history claimed by women. This novel, written in 1935 and described by Choice as a forgotten masterpiece, turns on the desire of a woman to teach her son about the past. Risking both their lives, she tells the story of the rise of fascism and the subsequent world transformation as life-loving women took over from death-loving men.
