A boxed set (three trade paperbacks) of the internationally celebrated speculative fiction trilogy from one of the most visionary authors of our time, Margaret Atwood.
Across three stunning novels--Oryx and Crake
, The Year of the Flood
, and Maddaddam
--the best-selling, Booker Prize-winning novelist projects us into a near future that is both all too familiar and beyond our imagining.
In Oryx and Crake
, a man struggles to survive in a world where he may be the last human. In search of answers, he 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. In The Year of the Flood
the long-feared waterless flood has occurred, altering Earth as we know it and obliterating most human life. And in Maddaddam
a small group of survivors band together with the Children of Crake: the gentle, bioengineered quasi-human species who will inherit this new earth.
Set in a darkly plausible future shaped by plagues, floods, and genetic engineering, these three novels take us from the end of the world to a brave new beginning. Thrilling, moving, and a triumph of imagination, the Maddaddam Trilogy confirms the ultimate endurance of humanity, community, and love.
