An award-winning and bestselling SF writer, Kim Stanley Robinson is widely acknowledged as one of the most exciting and visionary writers in the field. His latest novel, 2312, imagined how we would be living 300 years from now. Now, with his new novel, he turns from our future to our past - to the Palaeolithic era, and an extraordinary moment in humanity's development. An emotionally powerful and richly detailed portrayal of life 30,000 years ago, it is a novel that will appeal both to his existing fans and a whole new mainstream readership.

Review:

Robinson's expert world building and lyrical prose offer Jack London-esque pleasures as they depict the stark beauties of the icy landscape - it's desolation, dangers and the desperate choices it forces people to make when pushed to the edge of existence. Richly detailed. (KIRKUS REVIEWS)

This novel bears the markings of Robinson's consummate skill with a sort of anthropological fiction...Spectacular world building. (BOOKLIST)

A seriously composed and compelling novel about prehistoric life...some of the most intelligent entertainment you can find. (NPR BOOKS)

A thrilling journey through an age of ice and stone - one of Kim Stanley Robinson's best! (GREG BEAR)

This book proves once again that Robinson's fascination with the human condition and mankind's journey transcends easy genre labels...Despite all his previous accolades, this may be Robinson's best work to date, focused so sharply as it is on the simplest way of being human. (LIBRARY JOURNAL)

Vivid and beautiful . . . Astonishing (Guardian)

An amazing piece of recreation, vividly evoking the deprivations, animalistic beliefs and day-to-day struggles of a primitive tribe (Financial Times)

Low-tech lives and Ice Age conditions are all superbly evoked (Daily Mail)

Robinson's prose is rich and detailed . . . Superb (SFX)

An intelligent, and at times mesmerising novel (Irish Examiner)

Book Description:

An extraordinary portrayal of life in the Palaeolithic era, 30,000 years into our past, by the multi-award-winning author described recently by the Sunday Times as 'one of science fiction's greats'
