Annotation

The novel is composed entirely of a discussion between a woman on Earth and an alien on another planet that is presented as a naturally occurring eutopia without any technology with the Earth not quite a dystopia but considerably less appealing than the Forest of the other planet, which provides all that the inhabitants need. The inhabitants of the eutopia are similar to the birds of Earth in that they are feathered and fly, but they do not lay eggs, but they are neither female nor male with everyone capable of bearing offspring. They give live birth with the offspring carried in pouches until they mature. While they have personal names and differing interests and skills, they do not think of themselves as individuals and live in close-knit communities.
