Reviews

"Original and grimly unsentimental.... A major accomplishment, written in austerely beautiful prose."-The Washington Post Book World

"A funny, troubling story about our culture's devotion to technology
at the expense of humanity.... Clever and wise, a rare combination."-San Francisco Chronicle

"Although the world around Bill 'is diminished to the most feeble red light, ' the novel, at last, burns brightly."-The New Yorker

"A searing vision of our helter-skelter and spiritually debilitating technocracy."-The Chicago Tribune
