Review:

"A splendid and serious novel that reminds one once again of just how much the fictive imagination can order and enrich experience." --"National Observer"
"Lessing's prose has the nervous intensity and quick, impressionistic lightness of some of D. H. Lawrence's later work. We are caught up in a rush of strong feeling." --Walter Clemons, "Newsweek"
"[A] masterpiece...probably the best book she has written." --"The Economist"
