Praise

“Powerful, effective, and page-turningly suspenseful.” —The Christian Science Monitor“One of the best novels in English I have read about the terrorist mentality and the inner life of a revolutionary group.” —Alison Lurie, The New York Review of Books“A fine novel, a work of strong and scrupulous realism, absolutely contemporary. . . . What set of circumstances will produce a terrorist act? Lessing provides a convincing explanation.” —Marilynne Robinson, The Washington Post Book World“Engrossing…. It bristles with arresting situations and observations of character.” —Newsweek
