Read full description of the books Post Rock Limestone Caryatids:Through protagonist Maeve Wolf, Post Rock Limestone Caryatids explores life in a future in which genetically modified people live their lives in cubicles, accessing the world entirely through media. Wracked by fear and self-doubt, Maeve longs desperately for connection with other people, especially her infant niece.
Then Jabar appears, to proselytize Maeve. Or does he have some other motive? Next thing she knows, she's leaving her cube forever, thrown into the high-tech squalor of a squatters' camp in Manhattan, Kansas; discovering scrappy small-time thief Cal; meeting the vast, open prairie of the Flint Hills.
She also meets the Sisters of the Star, itinerant ladies in service to the needy; and Valie, a woman seeking to give her unborn child what she herself can never have: freedom from the bonds of genetic manipulation.
Themes of technology, popular culture, religion, and child development intertwine; part dystopian sci fi, part womens' lit, part nature writing, Post Rock Limestone Caryatids is a story that could not be confined to one genre. The only way to know what this book is about is to read it.
Read information about the authorRachel Creager Ireland is a housewife, mom of 2, and cat lover in rural Kansas. Or, she was a Sociology/Women's Studies major at Knox College who did too much LSD and dropped out of society, later to resurface as a massage therapist after discovering astrology, rebirthing, new age healing, and Divine Openings. Or, she was the nerdy, well-behaved daughter of a Physics professor and a Graphic Designer, who disappointed everyone by being such a loser, then by joining the petite bourgeoisie, then by failing in business, then by going around telling everyone she is a writer. Or, make up your own stories, it's all just stories.
As well as her sci-fi/naturalism/dystopian birth politics novel Post Rock Limestone Caryatids, Rachel writes monster erotica under the name Crea DelRand.
