9780006545934: The Cloning of Joanna May

An astonishing novel that probes into the strange world of genetic engineering.

Joanna May thought herself unique, indivisible – until one day, to her hideous shock, 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 daughers – Jane, Julie, Gina and Alice, 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.

Review:

‘The deadly accuracy of Fay Weldon’s psychology makes this bizarre tale a compulsive page-turner’
Daily Mail

‘A triumph of complex entertainment’
The Times

From the Back Cover:

“Chemistry, not biochemistry, is what Fay Weldon’s style brings to mind: sodium fizzing its way across a watertank in the school laboratory – with occasional periods of smooth cruising before it crackles into energy again.”
NEW STATESMAN & SOCIETY

“Another totally original novel by the best woman writer in Britain. Sharp, funny, very modern.”
WOMAN

“Domestic and global concerns jostle along together: the manner is brisk, the plot wild, the content visionary. There is so much energy in this large, moral, angry book that it feels at times actively dangerous.”
DAILY TELEGRAPH

“Her fertility of invention transforms the incredible into the irresistible.”
MAIL ON SUNDAY

“An outrageously funny novel.”
DAILY EXPRESS

“The deadly accuracy of her psychology and the smooth balance of he writing makes this bizarre tale a compulsive page-turner.”
DAILY MAIL

“A parable for our time. This is Weldon at her best: moralistic, but not preachy. A rattling read – with a brilliant twist at the end.”
SHE
