Paolo Bacigalupi's first novel is a brilliant work of the not so distant future, expanding on the themes in his dystopic short stories, where fossil fuels have gone the way of the dinosaurs, plagues are propagated by bio-engineered foods, and modified animals and humans, of which the title character is one, are the beasts on whose backs civilization rides.

From official release/information:

Product Description: What Happens when bio-terrorism becomes a tool for corporate profits? And what happens when said bio-terrorism forces humanity to the cusp of post-human evolution? In The Windup Girl, award-winning author Paolo Bacigalupi returns to the world of "The Calorie Man"( Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award-winner, Hugo Award nominee, 2006) and "Yellow Card Man" (Hugo Award nominee, 2007) in order to address these questions.
