Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood

09/08/2011 - 6:00pm

In this meeting of A Closer Look Book Club we explore Atwood's compelling vision of the future in which Snowman is struggling to survive in a world where he may be the last human. He mourns the loss of his best friend, Crake, and the beautiful and elusive Oryx whom they both loved. In search of answers, Snowman embarks on a journey through the lush wilderness that was so recently a great city, until powerful corporations took mankind on an uncontrolled genetic engineering ride. Margaret Atwood projects us into a near future that is both all too familiar and beyond our imagining.
