About the Book

Can a woman love two men with equal passion, even if one of them is a drug-induced fantasy?

This book explores such a possibility within the world of dreams and multiple realities - mysteries that have puzzled thinkers since ancient times. Set in a feminist Utopia created by women after a nuclear holocaust, the work follows Helga, a talented journalist, through dreams of her beloved, childbirth, and reunion with Professor Funfiel, the Doppelgänger of her real life lover, Peter. In their adventures they examine the meaning of radical feminism, shopping, and women's rights.
