"An exuberant celebration of excess set in a resource-poor but defiantly energetic twenty-first century."-The New York Times

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

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

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

In a future London, humans photosynthesize, organics have replaced electronics, viruses educate people, and very few live past forty. But Milena is resistant to the viruses. She's alone until she meets Rolfa, a huge, hirsute Genetically Engineered Polar Woman, and Milena realizes she might, just might, be able to find a place for herself after all.
