Comments  Summary  Reviews

Summary: "Here is the perfect novel for everyone who ever felt manipulated and lied to in a relationship, for everyone who ever thought they were sane and it was the doctors and psychiatrists who should be locked up, for everyone who ever wished for the perfect, low-maintenance baby, and for everyone who ever had doubts about how far medical science should go - regardless of how far it could go." "Moira Sugden, long-term resident of the Manxheath Institute of Challenged Stability, and her daughters Hazel and Linda are the ideal dysfunctional family. Hazel's husband Gregory is a gynecologist who is developing a "perfect baby" drug by experimenting on both his unsuspecting wife and his complicit mistress; Hazel's 4-year-old son - a result of Gregory's experiments - is communicating telepathically with his institutionalized grandmother; and Hazel's sister Linda has become a groupie of a seductive televangelist." "When Hazel finally learns the awful truth about her husband's research, she joins forces with her mother and sister to get even with the men who are controlling their lives. Too late to stop the birth of the perfect baby. But not too late for a piercingly funny and blackly ironic revenge on genetic engineering and the born-again church."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
