Review:

"An outstanding achievement....Robinson's writing ranks in the highest levels of the genre. The book generates a soaring optimism." --"Publishers Weekly"
"Through a blend of dirt-under-fingernails naturalism and lyrical magical realism, Robinson invites us to share his characters' intensely personal, intensely loyal attachment to what they have. The result is a bittersweet utopia that may shame you into entertaining new hope for the future." --"The New York Times Book Review"
"["Pacific Edge" is] the outstanding utopia of the last ten years and more." --"Foundation"

From the Back Cover:

The sun beats down from a glorious Orange County sky. People play softball and pedal their flyers above ecologically-sound thermocrete rooftops. The democratically elected council debate environmental issues and make rational decisions for the public good.

To Kevin Claiborne it must be the perfect society. But when he hears of plans to develop Rattlesnake Hill, the last piece of wilderness in the area, he senses the bubbling of corruption below the unblemished surface.

A world and an age away, a young writer sits in an internment camp in Virginia watching the march of events towards global disaster and dreams of utopia...

"Robinson's orange county books make their market-place competitors look trivial"
THE GUARDIAN

"Robinson into what he's best at, the evocation of people in love, people at odds, the delicate inside surfaces of social involution...supremely achieved"
SUNDAY TIMES

"Robinson's utopia is intellectually engaging"
NY REVIEW OF SF

"An outstanding achievement...Robinson's writing ranks in the highest levels of the genre"
