Praise

“A moral tale that has elements of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, Superman, and Star Wars.” —Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Set in a far future in which robots run a world with a small and declining human population, this novel could be considered an unofficial sequel to Fahrenheit 451, for its central event and symbol is the rediscovery of reading.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Because of its affirmation of such persistent human values as curiosity, courage, and compassion, along with its undeniable narrative power, Mockingbird will become one of those books that coming generations will periodically rediscover with wonder and delight.” —The Washington Post

“I’ve read other novels extrapolating the dangers of computerization but Mockingbird stings me, the writer, the hardest. The notion, the possibility, that people might indeed lose the ability, and worse, the desire to read, is made acutely probable.” — Ann McCaffery, New York Times bestselling author

“Walter Tevis is science fiction’s great neglected master, one of the definitive bridges between sf and literature.  For those who know his work only through the movies, the lucid prose and literary vision of Mockingbird . . . will come as a revelation.”  —Al Sarrantonio,  author of The Five Worlds
