Description



IT'S A WORLD RULED BY WOMEN. MEN ARE ALL BUT EXTRANEOUS AND VIOLENT CRIME IS ALMOST ERADICATED. WHAT COULD BE BETTER?


Severed Roots (recipient of Literary Titan Gold Book Award) depicts a future where family, long considered a patriarchal construct, has finally been outlawed. Children are birthed by select female "manufacturers" and raised in Children's Centres, where girls are groomed for leadership and boys are taught subservience. Male adolescents willingly receive mandatory chemical injections to prevent sexual hunger--although some opt for gender reassignment surgery instead, which is laudable.


The goal? To prevent all forms of patriarchy and usher in an uprecedented age of wolrd peace.


The result? A world ruled by women, where men are all but extraneous and violent crime is almost eradicated.


However, not everyone buys into this New World Order.


This is a domain of rallies, revolts, and self-immolation by women who suffer from being denied a chance at motherhood.


In the middle of the action is Nick Wong, a gentle, rule-following Canadian whose inquisitiveness and desire to do the right thing spur him on a perilous quest for Truth --about marriage, family and the need to connect with who we are.



"Severed Roots may well become a classic in the tradition of 1984 and Brave New World."
