Oryx and Crake

Margaret Atwood
Illustrated by Harriet Lee-Merrion
Foreword by the author

Never has a plague-ravaged world been so brilliantly depicted. Dark, edgy and eerily prophetic, Oryx and Crake is the blistering page-turner from Margaret Atwood that is making its stunning Folio debut.

How much is too much, how far is too far?
Jimmy shields his skin from the scorching post-apocalyptic sun by spending much of the day wrapped in a filthy sheet in his makeshift treehouse. Born before the world imploded, his body and mind are ill-equipped for this extreme environment, unlike the Crakers who have been bioengineered to cope. As Jimmy reflects on his all-consuming love for the elusive Oryx and his fateful friendship with megalomaniac Crake, we begin to piece together the chain of events that led to this catastrophic state.

A POST-APOCALYPTIC WORLD ACCORDING TO ATWOOD
Society has become divided between the compounds and the pleeblands: the former pushing the ethical boundaries of science for human benefit in self-contained, hermitically sealed cities; the latter fending for themselves in the unregulated outskirts. And while Jimmy struggles with his conscience, Crake forges ahead with his plans for a future race of humans that are naturally disease-free, UV-resistant, vegetarian and seasonally reproductive. But how to pave the way for these new, improved models? Crake has a plan, but he’s not intending to tell anyone about it … not even his best friend.
