Praise

"One of her profoundest visionary excursions." –Gail Godwin, Chicago Tribune Book World

"An extraordinary and compelling meditation about the enduring need for loyalty, love and responsibility." —Time

"A brilliant fable." –Maureen Howard, front page, The New York Times Book Review

"Doris Lessing again presents herself as one of the most intelligent of all modern novelists." —Philadelphia Bulletin

"The most fluid and suggestive of all her books." —St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"A short, easily read novel…part science fiction and part 19th-century realism, its effect is profoundly affecting and mystical… especially moving for those who have responded to Lessing’s previous work." —Houston Chronicle
