'Few novelists match the intensity of her vision' J. G. Ballard

No one knows why the ice has come, and no one can stop it. Every day it creeps further across the earth, covering the land in snow and freezing everything in its path. Through this bleached, devastated world, one man pursues the sylph-like, silver-haired girl he loves, as she keeps running - away from her husband; away from the sinister 'warden' who seeks to control her; away from him.

'A raw, brutal tale set in a frozen post-nuclear dystopia ... addictive and extremely entertaining' Guardian

'There is nothing else quite like Ice' Doris Lessing

'She is De Quincey's heir and Kafka's sister' Brian Aldiss

Review:

Astonishes with poetic brilliance (Sunday Telegraph)

There is nothing else like it... This ice is not psychological or metaphysical ice; here the loneliness of childhood has been magicked into a physical reality as hallucinatory as the Ancient Mariner's. (Doris Lessing)

One of the most mysterious of modern writers, Anna Kavan created a uniquely fascinating fictional world. Few contemporary novelists could match the intensity of her vision (J. G. Ballard)

One of the most terrifying postulations about the end of the world.. One can only admire the strength and courage of this visionary (The Times)

Brutal, addictive and extremely entertaining... strange, unsettling and harsh (Guardian)

Serious, evocative and surprising, unique in its obsessive images of encroachment (Christopher Priest)

Now, I can tell you about some women writers who truly are fantastic. One is Anna Kavan...she's not hung up with being a woman, she just keeps extending herself, keeps telescoping language and plot. (Patti Smith Penthouse)

Ice is superbly unsettling... this novel is perfect winter reading. (James Marriott The Times)

Just the most magnificent book...hugely enigmatic, a genuine novel of the unconscious and a masterpiece. I feel very passionate about it, as you can probably tell. (Frank Tallis The Guardian)

From the Back Cover:

'No sun, no shadows, no life, a dead cold'

No one knows why the ice has come, and no one can stop it. Every day it creeps further across the earth, covering the land in snow and freezing everything in its path. Through this bleached, devastated world, one man pursues the sylph-like, silver-haired girl he loves, as she keeps running - away from her husband; away from the sinister 'warden' who seeks to control her; away from him.
