Oryx and Crake-Margaret Atwood
“She’s their teacher,” said Crake. “We need a go-between, someone who could communicate on their level. Simple concepts, no metaphysics.”
“What’s she teaching?” Jimmy said this indifferently: bad plan for him to show too much interest in any woman, in the presence of Crake: oblique mockery would follow.
“Botany and zoology,” said Crake with a grin. “In other words, what not to eat and what could bite. And what not to hurt,” he added.
“For that she had to be naked?”
“They’ve never seen clothes. Clothes would only confuse them.” (309)
