Which above all made me think of the mental defenses we tend to create in order to avoid seeing this infinite emptiness, this absence of meaning, the dreadful vacuum with which we are necessarily left when attempting to comprehend such events. In order to do that, the future world of the speculative novel has to sound as though the events narrated could be History, could become our collective past in a distant future. The hypothetical future of the novel has to be recounted as a credible past in order to fulfill its didactic purpose.

Oryx and Crake is a novel by Canadian author Margaret Atwood. She has described the novel as speculative fiction and adventure romance , rather than pure science fiction , because it does not deal with things "we can't yet do or begin to do",  yet goes beyond the amount of realism she associates with the novel form. The reader learns of his past, as a boy called Jimmy, and of genetic experimentation and pharmaceutical engineering that occurred under the purview of Jimmy's peer, Glenn "Crake". The book was first published by McClelland and Stewart. The novel focuses on a post-apocalyptic character called "Snowman", living near a group of primitive human-like creatures whom he calls Crakers. Flashbacks reveal that Snowman was once a boy named Jimmy who grew up in a world dominated by multinational corporations and privileged compounds for the families of their employees. Near starvation, Snowman decides to return to the ruins of a compound named RejoovenEsense to search for supplies, even though it is overrun by dangerous genetically engineered hybrid animals.
