"In his atmospheric, occasionally mesmerizing tale of haves and have-nots...the novel's depiction of life in this dystopian world is eerie and suffused with symbolic weight."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"Radical...If they don't teach Ball's work in college by now, they should...Readers who appreciate Ball's keen, melancholic, and often sadly satirical view of human society will likely appreciate this timely assessment of where division might take us and how it affects the generations that come after us."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
