Ruby Lord

about this book: The premise of the book is about fertility and it is set in the future where men are imprisoned to produce sperm for fertilisation processes. The environment is hostile and the men are treated as second class citizens. Rixon, the main character needs to escape when he finds some information in his file. This is the thrust he needs after eight years of imprisonment in the farm and he takes a risk in confiding in one of his captors when the Guard reveals something about himself that Rixon didn't know.

Normally fertility is focussed on women. When I started writing this book I wondered what would happen if I made the focus men? Women have previously and to some extent are still controlled by men, although not as much as they used to be. I found the idea that women could be controlled as baby producers in previous literary interpretations contained a massive amount of sexism and I wanted to explore the ideas behind fertility from a different perspective.

Amazon reviews:

• "An interesting concept and style reminiscent of Orwell's 1984, Huxley's Brave New World or Margaret Attwood's Handmaids Tale. The unforgiving examination of the subject matter is apposite for our times."

• "If you enjoyed Utopia or Children of Men, then this is the book for you. A great read, I look forward to more from Ruby Lord."
