Prize winning novelist and poet Leona Gom departs from her previous books and challenges the reader to meet an all-women society of the future. Taught and gripping - a page turner at its very best - The Y Chromosome examines the reliations and value system of a culture of women where the few men still alive are in hiding, socialized early in life to regard themselves as inferior. This futurist society abhors its ancestry, a male-dominated world where violence was commonplace. But Gom's woman's universe is far from perfect. Avoiding caricatures and easy answers, The Y Chromosome is an ironic and provocative novel which probes women's and men's lives in a society which, despite striking differences, bears many similarities to our world today.
