""The Day of Creation is a metaphysical adventure story dealing with complex themes--the life-giving qualities of water, the cold eye of television, obsession, love--all set in a dream Africa, as if hallucinated by Joseph Conrad."--Angela Carter
"Ballard has successfully created a new myth, a late-20th-century saga of distracted humans making a lonely voyage through time and the river to the well-spring of their parched imaginations." --"Time
"A near-classic adventure." --"The New York Times Book Review
