Joanna. Jeannine. Janet. Jael.

Four women, four worlds, four vastly different societies. When these women are suddenly able to communicate with each other through the boundaries of dimensions, they are confronted with what could have been if one thing changed in history.

And they find themselves looking at their own worlds with new eyes. Acclaimed as one of the essential works of science fiction, The Female Man examines gender roles in society and remains a work of great power. It won a retrospective James Tiptree Jr. Award and a 2002 Gaylactic Spectrum Hall of Fame award.

‘A stunning book, a work to be read with great respect. It’s also screamingly funny’ – San Francisco Review of Books

‘She was brilliant in a way that couldn’t be denied’- The New Yorker

‘It’s a gorgeous book, frankly, and well worth any reader’s time’ –
