Summary, etc.: With the same stunning blend of prophecy and social satire she brought to her classic The handmaid's tale, Margaret Atwood gives us a keenly prescient novel about the future of humanity--and its present. Humanity here equals Snowman, and in Snowman's recollections Atwood re-creates a time much like our own, when a boy named Jimmy loved an elusive, damaged girl called Oryx and a sardonic genius called Crake. But now Snowman is alone, and as we learn why we also learn about a world that could become ours one day.
