Pamela Sargent's writing is very dense, and this book brings up some interesting observations about gender issues by portraying a post-apocalyptic dystopian society in which women live in cities and are the keepers of civilization, while men are forced to live outside in a very stone-age-like state. A woman is exiled from a city and must make her way through this landscape. Sargent uses this to run through some scenarios of different living variations.

While good, I don't think I need to read it ever again.
