Détails de l'œuvre
Carmen Dog par Carol Emshwiller
"Combines the cruel humor ofCandide with the allegorical panache ofAnimal Farm."--Entertainment Weekly "Carol is the most unappreciated great writer we've got.Carmen Dog ought to be a classic in the colleges by now . . . It's so funny, and it's so keen." --Ursula K. Le Guin "A rollicking outre satire.... full of comic leaps and absurdist genius."--Bitch "A wise and funny book."--The New York Times "This trenchant feminist fantasy-satire mixes elements ofAnimal Farm, Rhinoceros andThe Handmaid's Tale.... Imagination and absurdist humor mark [Carmen Dog] throughout, and Emshwiller is engaging even when most savage about male-female relationships."--Booklist "Her fantastic premise allows Emshwiller canny and frequently hilarious insights into the damaging sex-role stereotypes both men and women perpetuate." --Publishers Weekly The debut title in our Peapod Classics line, Carol Emshwiller's genre-jumping debut novel is a dangerous, sharp-eyed look at men, women, and the world we live in. Everything is changing: women are turning into animals, and animals are turning into women. Pooch, a golden setter, is turning into a beautiful woman--although she still has some of her canine traits: she just can't shuck that loyalty thing--and her former owner has turned into a snapping turtle. When the turtle tries to take a bite of her own baby, Pooch snatches the baby and runs. Meanwhile, there's a dangerous wolverine on the loose, men are desperately trying to figure out what's going on, and Pooch discovers what she really wants: to sing Carmen. Carmen Dog is the funny feminist classic that inspired writers Pat Murphy and Karen Joy Fowler to create the James Tiptree Jr. Memorial Award.
