Reading Is Good For You

May 19, 2008

As part of my reading project I just finished He, She, It by Marge Piercy. Wow. I’ve been reading Ms. Piercy’s poetry for quite awhile but wasn’t familiar with her novels. This one is a doozy. She manages to throw together a story about the Golem of Prague, a vivid post-apocalyptic near future setting, love, and the idea of machines that think and feel. Piercy nails the “feel” of cyberpunk, and yet leaves room for a rumination on love, sex, and family. Highly recommended.
