Product Details


"A masterpiece. . . . Probably the best book she has written."
The Economist

"A splendid and serious novel that reminds one once again of just how much the fictive imagination can order and enrich experience."
The National Observer

"We are caught up in a rush of strong feeling. . . . Lessing’s prose has the nervous intensity and quick, impressionistic lightness of some of D.H. Lawrence’s later work."
