In the city of the future, humans photosynthesize, viruses educate people, organics have replaced electronics...and almost no one lives past forty. In the city of the future, Milena is resistant to the viruses. She is barred from the Consensus. She has Bad Grammar. In the city of the future, Milena feels alone. In the city of the future, Milena meets Rolfa, the huge and hirsute Genetically Engineered Polar Woman. And might, just might, find a place for herself after all...

Review:

"Excellent...Dark and witty and full of love, closely observed, and sprinkled with astonishing ideas. Science fiction of a very high order."--Greg Bear

"A richly absorbing tale--with a marvelous premise expertly carried out."--Kirkus Reviews

"One of the most imaginative accounts of futuristic bioengineering since Geg Bear's Blood Music."--Locus

"A heady novel bursting with speculation."--Library Journal

"An exuberant celebration of excess set in a resource-poor but defiantly eneregtic 21st century...you will not be bored."--The New York Times

From Publishers Weekly:
