From the Back Cover:

Joanna May thought herself unique, indivisible – until one day, she discovered herself to be five: though childless she was a mother: though an only child she was surrounded by sisters young enough to be her daughters – the clones of Joanna May.

How will they withstand the shock of first meeting? And what of the avenging Carl, Joanna’s former husband and the clones’ creator; will he take revenge for his wife’s infidelity and destroy her sisters one by one?

In this astonishing novel, Fay Weldon weaves a web of paradox quite awesome in its cunning. Probing into the strange world of genetic engineering, 'The Cloning of Joanna May' raises frightening questions about our identity as individuals – and provides some startling answers. Funny, serious, revolutionary, this is the work of a master storyteller at the height of her powers.

“A triumph of complex entertainment”
