Product Details


“Beautiful science fiction . . . The story of an extraterrestrial visitor from another planet is deigned mainly to say something about life on this one.”The New York Times

“Those who know The Man Who Fell to Earth only from the film version are missing something. This is one of the finest science fiction novels of its period.”—J.R. Dunn, author of Full Tide of Night

“An utterly realistic novel about an alien human on Earth . . . Realistic enough to become a metaphor for something inside us all, some existential loneliness.”—Norman Spinrad

“Tevis writes . . . with power and poetry and tension.”The Washington Post Book World

“Terrific . . . The Man Who Fell to Earth can be seen as the story of a very hip, space-age Passion—about a savior who comes to Earth not to save us but hos own people and who is, in effect, crucified dead and buried.”—Vincent Canby
