Reviews

  • "Genius...Marge Piercy is every bit as imaginative as H. G. Wells or Isaac Asimov or any of the great fantasists, but she is also a fierce and devoted activist who wants us to be more than passive readers...I urge you to read Marge Piercy now."

    Gloria Steinem
  • "Marge Piercy’s characters are complex and very human"

    Margaret Atwood
  • "Here is somebody with the guts to go into the deepest core of herself, her time, her history, and risk more than anybody else has so far, just out of a love for the truth and a need to tell it."

    Thomas Pynchon

  • "Both absorbing and exciting"

    New York Times Book Review
